Delhi court discharge order of #UmarKhalid and #KhalidSaifi in #Delhiriots case: As far as accused Saifi and Khalid are concerned, I find that allegations made against them relate to Umbrella Conspiracy, rather the conspiracy peculiar to incident investigated in this case.
Order: I have already discussed scope of 2 different conspiracies. Since, Umbrella Conspiracy—larger conspiracy to incite riots in Delhi—is already subject matter of consideration in FIR 59/2020 (UAPA).., these 2 accused are entitled for discharge. #UmarKhalid #KhalidSaifi
Order: There is concept of an Umbrella Conspiracy being the larger conspiracy and several smaller conspiracies hatched under the larger conspiracy. The objective of Umbrella Conspiracy may be wider than the objective of smaller conspiracy. #UmarKhalid #KhalidSaifi
