Delhi police arrest Jamia Alumni Association’s president Shifa-Ur-Rehman in connection to the Delhi Anti-Hindu Riots

Technical evidence such as call records and Whatsapp messages have suggested his role in inciting mobs during the Delhi Anti-Hindu riots, said the Delhi Police.

On Sunday the Special Cell of the Delhi Police has arrested one Shifa-Ur-Rehman, the president of the Jamia Alumni Association (JMA), for involvement in the Delhi Anti-Hindu riots under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA). Sources have revealed that he was called for questioning on Sunday and was subsequently arrested after incriminating evidence was found against him.

As per reports, Delhi Police have stated that Shifa was caught on CCTV footage in riot-hit areas of North East Delhi. Technical evidence such as call records and Whatsapp messages have suggested his role in inciting mobs during the Delhi Anti-Hindu riots. Shifa-Ur-Rehman has been remanded to 10 days in judicial custody by a local court.

As per reports, Delhi Police in its application demanding custody of Shifa said that the interrogation of witnesses has revealed that Shifa Ur Rehman received funds from alumni association of JMI based in Middle Eastern countries and he was coordinating at the protest sites. “He is also found actively involved in a conspiracy hatched in setting up anti CAA/NPR/NRC protests at various sites in Delhi, giving hate speeches that led to the riots in February 2020 at various protest sites, i.e., Jamia Nagar, Shaheen Bagh, Seelampur, Khureji, Inderlok and Hauz Rani,” Delhi Police said in its statement.

Umar Khalid arrested by Delhi Police

Earlier, JNU student leader Umar Khalid was booked under UAPA in a case related to the anti-Hindu riots in Delhi. Two other leaders from the Jamia Coordination Committee, Meeran Haider and Safoora Zargar were booked under the same Act. The two are now in judicial custody after they were arrested last week. The Police had claimed in the FIR that the communal violence was a “premeditated conspiracy” by Khalid and others.

Zargar is the media co-ordinator of the Jamia Coordination Committee and Haider is a member. So far, 10 people have been arrested by the special cell of Delhi Police that is looking into the Delhi riots that were orchestrated timed with US President Donald Trump’s visit to India.

The Delhi Riots

Massive communal riots broke out in the national capital during Donald Trump’s visit to India. The riots cost huge losses to life and property. Over the course of the investigation, the role of Radical Islamist organization PFI and others came to the fore. Home Minister Amit had promised on the floor of the Parliament that a thorough investigation into the matter would be carried out and the guilty would be punished.
