#UmarKhalid being arrested under the UAPA is the latest sign that the Delhi Police is blatantly taking sides when it comes to investigating February's Delhi riots.

2/ Former JNU student Umar Khalid was arrested by the Delhi Police late last night for his alleged role in the North-East Delhi riots that happened in the aftermath of anti-CAA protests in February.

He has being called one of the major conspirators involved in the violence.
3/ During a peaceful protest, Khalid had said that he and his followers would not respond to hate with hate, going as far to say “ If they fire bullets, then we will hold the Constitution.”

He has been charged with a law used to detain terrorists.
4/ Kapil Mishra, a BJP leader, threatened to take the law into his own hands, even overriding the Delhi police if peaceful protestors were not removed. The North-East Delhi riots started a short while after he made this statement.

He remains free.
5/ Komal Sharma, caught on camera with vandals attacking JNU students and professors in January later claimed she wasn’t at JNU on that day despite clear evidence.

She remains free.
6/ Union Minister of State, Anurag Thakur chanted “Desh ke gaddaro ko goli maaro saalo ko”, literally asking people to shoot “traitors” while on camera.

He is attending Parliament sessions.
7/ Parvesh Verma, a BJP leader, threatened to wipe out both peaceful protests and mosques if the BJP came to power in Delhi.

A Delhi court has refused to let an FIR be filed against him.
8/ The Delhi Police’s “investigation” into the Delhi riots has so far been a targeted and politically-motivated witch-hunt. Several activists have been arrested for months without evidence.

Meanwhile, there has been little action against those affiliated with the ruling party.
9/ It is the job of the Delhi Police to impartially look into matters. It is not their job to arrest those who disagree with the government.

We must stand against the arrest of Umar Khalid.
