Accordingly, the application is allowed and ten days police custody remand of the accused, namely, Umar Khalid is given to the IO”, Bar and Bench quoted the court having ordered.

Khalid was arrested by the Delhi Police on Sunday in connection with an FIR filed against him in which he was accused of having masterminded the Delhi riots. Charges under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) were later on slapped against him.

He was produced before the court through video-conferencing.
