#UmarKhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots
Matter starts.

Adv. Pais has filed a fresh bail application u/s 437 CrPC substituting the earlier one u/s 439 CrPC.
Earlier SPP Amit Prasad has challenged the maintainability of the bail application u/s 439 CrPC of Ishrat Jahan in the same FIR.

In a related matter, the court inquires Jail authorities how Ishrat Jahan will be produced before the court on 10 September.
Jail Authorities says as the court orders.
Court says it's WebEx then.

#UmarKhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots
Adv. Pais: I have moved the new application to reflect section 437.
Have Mr. Prasad received the copy of the same?

#UmarKhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots
SPP Prasad: Yes, I have recieved it. But I need to revert the same.
#UmarKhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots
Pais: I can continue arguing.
#UmarKhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots
Pais: My learned friend can let his argument that my application is a dilatory tactic come on record. I can continue with my arguments. SPP's response can come later.
#UmarKhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots
Court says that it is a question of law that if a new bail application has come on record, SPP's reply needs to be filed before arguments can be made on new application.
#UmarKhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots
Court: It is a technical issue. I agree with Mr. Pais that the State's reply will be more or less the same. But State's reply needs to be filed.
#UmarKhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots
Court: I don't want technical objections to come in the way. Let the matter come on tomorrow.
#UmarKhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots
SPP Prasad: Tomorrow is a physical hearing day. Also, I am facing health issues.
Pais: I have one matter before High Court as well.
#UmarKhalid #UAPA #DelhiRiots
Court: State to file its reply. Also, Mr. Pais to seek instructions from his client whether he wants to be present in court physically.

The matter is listed to be next heard on the day after tomorrow at 11 am.

Delhi High Court denies bail to two accused persons in #DelhiRiots case of violence against the @DelhiPolice in which HC Ratan Lal lost his life.
Noting that the footage of the two accused persons at the "Scene of Crime is quite egregious," the court said it was "sufficient to keep the Petitioner(s) in custody."
Comparing the cases to those of other accused who were given bail in the matter, the court said the Petitioners "did not satisfy the ingredients to claim bail on ground of parity with the other co-accused...as none of those co-accused...were caught in an overt act..."
