Delhi Violence: Jamia coordination committee core member held

New Delhi, April 12 (IANS) The Delhi Police on Saturday arrested Jamia Coordination Committee (JCC) core member and media coordinator Safoora Zargar in connection with the Delhi riots case.

Safoora was arrested by the Delhi Police for her alleged role in orchestrating the violence that erupted in the North East part of the national capital in February.

Confirming her arrest, a member from the JCC said, “Safoora has been arrested in FIR no. 150/2020 by the police accusing her for having a role in orchestrating the North East Delhi violence.”

“A bail plea has been moved citing that Safoora is three months pregnant and hence, her health should be taken care of,” the member said.

On April 6, the police custody of a 35-year-old Jamia Millia Islamia research scholar was extended by nine days by a Delhi court.

Meeran Haider was arrested for allegedly hatching a conspiracy to incite violence in the northeast Delhi in February. He is president of Delhi’s youth wing of the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD).

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sudhir Kumar Sirohi allowed Haider’s custodial interrogation after Delhi Police contended that he needed to be confronted with other accused and unearth the larger conspiracy.

Widespread violence between groups supporting the changed citizenship law and opposing it had spiralled out of control in February, leaving 53 people dead and scores injured in its wake.
