A day after former JNU student Umar Khalid was arrested, senior Delhi Police officers on Monday said they had decided to file a conspiracy indictment in the February 2020 Northeast Delhi riots and identified traffic jams by anti-CAA protesters as the first indication that there was a plot because of which it all started.
Speaking at a webinar organized by the Delhi Police Officers Officers Association, which was also attended by Commissioner SN Shrivastava, Deputy Police Commissioner (Special Cell) Pramod Singh Kushwaha was quoted by the PTI as saying they had not yet found any evidence of pro-CAA-NRC protester involvement.

Kushwaha said, “When we started the investigation into the Delhi riots, we first looked at all the places and found a common pattern that traffic jams started in all the places at the same time. It was the first indication that there was a plot because of which it all started. “
Raising questions about the lack of action against BJP leader Kapil Mishra over his alleged inflammatory speech a day before the riots in the area, DyCP was quoted as saying, “A confession is being made that pro-CAA / NRC people were involved in to, but has not yet entered the investigation.
On Monday, Delhi Police took Khalid’s 10-day custody, which is reserved under UAPA, on charges stemming from his participation in anti-CAA protests. The Delhi Police Special Cell also questioned filmmakers Rahul Roy and Saba Dewan on Monday for about eight hours and told them to join the investigation into the riots.
Commenting on the criticism over Khalids’ arrest and the Delhi Police investigation into the case, Shrivastava told the webinar, “As we approach the end of this investigation, and as you know Umar Khalid was arrested, so there is a kind of crying especially on social media “The print media and also today the TV channels… (They) are trying to take away from the investigation. You know that many of the people we are investigating have a very good presence on social media.”
Shrivastava said Delhi Police will file an indictment by Thursday in connection with the riot plot case. “While it is close, there is more and more noise and news … several attempts by some interest groups to discredit the Delhi Police investigation. Delhi Police has registered 751 cases and it has done so in a very fair way and “impartial and out of 751 cases, 340 have been resolved. The rest we did not lead much to.”
According to the PTI report, Kushwaha said they had identified 25 protest sites, most of them in the trans-Yamuna area, and that the people who were part of it came from abroad, and were not locals. “People kept going to the protest sites again and again and they talked about the CAA-NRC so that more and more people came in and it looked like a CAA-NRC protest was going on.
Requesting detention for Khalids for 10 days, Delhi Police told additional hearing judge Amitabh Rawat on Monday that they wanted to confront him with documents that ran to 11 lakh pages.
Approving the request for policy, ASJ Rawat noted, “Considering the nature of the case and the role of the accused Umar Khalid that has emerged so far in connection with the plot and involvement in the anti-CAA / NPR / NRC protest, with the support of some radical groups / organizations… I consider it reasonable, in order to have an effective and proper investigation, to allow the current request for police custody.
Special Public Prosecutor Amit Prasad said that “from the examination of witnesses, it was revealed that the accused Umar Khalid was coordinating the protest sites in Delhi with other radical groups”, and said that his custody was necessary to “discover a deep-rooted plot. “
Trideep Pais, who appeared on behalf of Khalid, said police have not stated any specific reason for the detention. Pointing out that Khalid had been questioned for five hours on July 31 and about 12 hours the Sunday before his arrest, Pais said, “What is their issue? This app does not even say what they want to face; they “They want to do things while they go together. Whether it’s a provocative speech or not – isn’t it a duty to say when he spoke, where he spoke?”
He also read a transcript of Khalid’s speech and said he had not even been to Delhi during the riots. “(His) speech by Amravati is about peace … I am also against the CAA, this is not a crime. What is the crime that Umar is said to have committed? It is well known to the public that people have been pressured to make statements in police custody. They say he protested. Everyone protested… This application is not valid even for one day of detention. “
Prasad acknowledged that not much had been revealed, but said this was necessary under UAPA, to maintain the sanctity of the investigation. PTI entries
