The Delhi High Court on Monday reserved its judgment on appeal filed by United Against Hate and Delhi riots accused Khalid Saifi challenging the denial of his bail plea by the trial court.

A bbench of Justices Siddharth Mridul and Rajnish Bhatnagar reserved its order.

Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat had dismissed Saifi’s bail plea on April 8 stating that the allegations against him seemed prima facie true.
