#Breaking : Delhi Court extends judicial custody of Umar Khalid till November 20 in connection with Delhi Riots case.

@UmarKhalidJNU @DelhiPolice
We would like to make submissions : Counsel for Khalid.

Yes, yes: Court
Please have the JC remand application of sept 24, I was earlier showing you the police remand application: counsel
There is absolutely no application of mind. They have just copy pastes. Even typographical errors are repeated: Counsel
There is no ground for extension. Umar voluntarily participated in investigation. There is no question of non cooperation or tampering: Counsel
Non cooperation is not an issue : Court
I don't think Umar Khalid came in the way of further investigation: Counselb
I'm saying the grounds today are same as 30 days back. There is no change. There is no question on his absconding. The remand application is just mechanical: counsel
I'll pass an order and you will get in half an hour through me: Court
Court is also considering the extension of judicial custody of Sharjeel Imam in the same case.

I would like to point out that I have some mobility but it's desirable that I also have the same mobility of other inmates. I want to covey this to my lawyer: Sharjeel
Court asks counsel for Sharjeel to move appropriate applications for his grievances.
Hearing comes to an end.
