New Delhi, Aug 26 (IANS) | Publish Date: 8/26/2020 12:26:55 PM IST

A Delhi court on Wednesday sent Jawaharlal Nehru University scholar Sharjeel Imam to four-day police custody in connection with the February Delhi riots case.

On Tuesday, the Delhi Police Special Cell had arrested Imam in connection with the riots under the stringent Unlawful Activities Prevention Act UAPA). He was brought back to the capital from Assam two days earlier on a production warrant.

The Delhi Police had moved an application for five-day remand of Imam.

Additional Session Judge Amitabh Rawat allowed an application moved by Imam's counsel for two legal interviews with him in a period of five days, away from the hearing range of police officials.

During the court proceedings, Imam's lawyer Surbhi Dhar opposed the five-day custody sought and requested court to grant it for a shorter time.

"The accused was in judicial custody for one month before the Delhi riots. Accordingly, there is limited information which can be sought from him; so five days in custody is not required."
