Delhi Court observed that they were neither previous convicts nor even gangsters and thus dismissed the plea of authorities to produce Umar Khalid and Khalid Saifi by handcuffing in both hands on grounds of being “high risk prisoners”.
Both are accused in connection with the Delhi riots that broke out in the national capital last year.
The development was shown in the the two applications w.r.t FIR filed by the Lock-Up, Karkardooma District Courts.
In view of the previous order of the Court, report was sought from the Delhi Police, Special Cell and the Jail Superintendent. As a result, replies were filed by authorities.
According to the replies received by authorities it was stated that no such application was produced in name of both accused in ‘handcuffs in both hands from back side’ is filed by court.
The court rejected the application and said it was not required at this stage.
