Denying bail to Saleem Malik, who has been booked under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) in connection with the 2020 north-east Delhi riots case, a Delhi court Thursday observed that he attended “conspiratorial meetings” and was also one of the organisers of the Chand Bagh protest site where an inflammatory speech was allegedly delivered.

Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat denied bail to Malik, who has been in judicial custody since June 25, 2020. Noting that even though Malik may not have been a participant of several WhatsApp groups under investigation in this case, the court said the chargesheet, however, alleges that he took part in the alleged conspiracy to commit the riots.
