'Vicious' media campaign against me in Delhi riots case: Umar Khalid

Nov 29, 2020 08:31 IST

Former JNU student leader Umar Khalid alleged before a Delhi court on Saturday that there has been a “vicious” media campaign against him in various newspapers and on TV channels about his alleged role in the February Delhi riots that left at least 53 people dead and around 200 injured. The media platforms were reporting about him on the basis of the supplementary chargesheet, even though Khalid did not have a copy of it and cannot defend himself. Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat directed the court staff to provide the soft copy of the supplementary chargesheet to Khalid's counsel on Saturday. During the hearing, Special Public Prosecutor Amit Prasad, appearing for the police, denied all the allegations raised by Khalid.
