New Delhi: The lawyer of Delhi Police has compared the riots that broke out in Delhi in 2020 with the deadliest terrorist attack in America. He said in the court that as before the 9/11 attacks in America, all the terrorists were trained properly and before carrying out the attack, all had reached their respective hideouts. Exactly the same happened during the Delhi riots. The court on Friday heard the bail plea of former JNU student Umar Khalid.
Opposing the bail, Special Public Prosecutor Amit Prasad accused Khalid of conspiring to organize meetings and supervise the sit-in site. Prasad said the outward appearance of the movement was described as secular, while the entire movement was planned and tested. Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat heard Khalid's bail plea. SPP Amit Prasad said in the court that the pattern of 9/11 terror attack in America and riots in Delhi is similar. He said that before the 9/11 attack, all the terrorists had reached a particular place and had taken proper training. After this, a month before the attack, everyone had reached their respective places. Exactly the same has happened in the Delhi riots as well.
The Public Prosecutor further said that it is very important to mention the 9/11 terror attacks here. The mastermind of that attack had never been to America before. The meeting of that conspiracy took place in Malaysia. At that time there was no WhatsApp chat. But today it is not so. We have documents that Khalid was also part of the group involved in the Delhi riots. The documents show that there was every possibility of violence due to this. Prasad told the court that the issue of protests in 2020 was not CAA or NRC. The protesters only wanted to embarrass the government. He wanted this issue to be discussed in the international media. Earlier, the SPP had said in the court that the picket sites were deliberately built near the mosques. But then the protest was described as secular. Let us inform that 53 people lost their lives in the Delhi riots and more than 700 people were injured. Action has been taken against Umar Khalid and many others under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).
