#Umarkhalid #DelhiRiots Image
Court to hear matter at 12.45 pm

#UmarKhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots #DelhiCourt
Adv Trideep Pais appears for Umar Khalid.

Pais places the copy of FIR.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots #DelhiCourt
Pais- 750 FIRs stand registered in case of the Delhi Riots. i am not named in a single FIR and arrested in 1.
These FIR have been unnecessarily filed against me and it is targeted against persons important to the protest.

#Umarkhalid #Delhiriots #UAPA #Delhicourt
Pais- 6th March FIR was framed so that you could get statements to frame people. They are all cooked up statements. The chargesheet is complete fabrication.

#Umarkhalid #DelhiRiots #DelhiCourt #UAPA
Pais reads contents of FIR against Khalid.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots #DelhiCourt
Copy of FIR Image
Pais- The basis of the FIR was “chakka Jam” and “bhadkau Bhashan” at different places.

Pais points out how FIRs were filed under different provisions of law. Image
Pais- The chargesheet will not stand the test. “Laughable” statements have been made. It is only to keep these people in jail. I submit none of the people in FIR 59 should be held in custody.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots #Delhicourt
Pais- How is the act preventive when you impose sections after I am arrested. Where is it preventing unlawful activities. The distress of judiciary are POTA, UAPA because the hands of judiciary are tied in granting bail to the accused.

#UmarKhalid #UAPA #Delhiriots
Pais shares a comparative chart of bail provisions under various special legislations. Image
Contd... Image
Pais- You (your lordship) have been given the solemn duty of perusing the case diary and the burden is on the prosecution to prove that there is a case against me.

There is no speech against me forget speeches.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots
Pais refers to the transcription of Umar Khalid on youtube by Republic World allegedly on 17 Feb 2020 at Amrawati , Maharashtra.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots #Delhicourt
Pais now refers to News 18 channel. Image
Pais- The police sent notice to News 18. The police officer has watched youtube and sends notice after 10 days of the incident.

The reply by news 18 contains a DVD which is not part of the DVD.
Thereafter another notice is sent again.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA #Delhiriots
Pais- These are journalists who see video on YouTube and do not go the event and are unable to provide the raw footage.
The video was picked up from a tweet by a member of BJP.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots
ASJ Amitabh Rawat-So the video was broadcast without verifying?

Pais- ofcourse mylordship.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA #Delhiriots #Delhicourt
Pais- If you go back to the FIR it says I gave “bhadkau bhashan” at different places. This is FIR 59. Based on this you now cook stories.
If you go back to 6th march you have a video footage that is broadcasted from a tweet. This is the death of journalism.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA
Pais- They have gone to the extent of fabricating statements that are shocking.
You have a truncated version of video from YouTube which is copied from a tweet.

#UmarKhalid #UAPA #Delhiriots #Delhicourt
Pais shares the tweet. Image
Pais- It makes a world of difference where that one sentence was changed by News 18.
They have nothing against me except this video.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA #Delhiriots #DelhiCourt
Pais shares video footage of Umar Khalid’s speech at Amravati, Maharashtra.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA #Delhiriots #Delhihighcourt
Pais- The reason that the entire speech was played was because to show that the contents are not seditious but opposed to the introduction of the new law.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA #Delhiriots #Delhicourt
Pais-This is the starting point, he says “aap hinsa karenge toh hum pyar dikhayenge, aap jail bhejenge toh hum saare jahan se acha gakar sunayenge.”

This is what is happening. They are all in jail. This video is the best evidence against me and that too I have produced it.
Pais reads Para 20 of the Police submission. Image
Pais-The theory is that Khalid Saifi, Tahir Hussain and Umar Khalid met and prepared for the riot.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA #Delhiriots #Delhicourt
Pais- They tell you that I was aware that Donald Trump was arriving when the MEA also did not know the dates...
The witnesses statement changes. It is shocking they will lie in any manner.

#UmarKhalid #UAPA #Delhiriots
Pais-There was a theory on February 22, that a conspiracy for riot was made when Donald Trump was to arrive in India.
On 21st May 2020, the witness does not speak of the meeting at all. Admittedly he was an employee of Mr Tahir Hussain.
#Umarkhalid #UAPA #Delhiriots
Pais-So how did you file the 22nd June chargesheet of riot. So they file a supplementary chargesheet where the witness speaks about the meeting.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA #Delhiriots #Delhicourt
Pais- These are the kind of lies your lordship have to believe to deny me bail.

#UmarKhalid #UAPA #Delhiriots #Delhicourt
Pais refers to submissions made in FIR 101 before ASJ Vinod Yadav.

Khalid was granted bail in the said FIR.

#Umarkhalid #Delhiriots #UAPA #Delhiriots
Pais-on the 6th march you had nothing and then you make statements as and when you want to arraign people. This entire FIR is a cooked up. Let all the 750 people names in the FIR be investigated under IPC.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA #Delhiriots #Delhicourt
Pais- It is naked on the face of it that this FIR is fabricated.

Bench adjourns hearing for the day.

#Umarkhalid #UAPA #Delhiriots #Delhicourt
Matter to be heard on September 3 and 6.
