The Delhi Police Friday told the sessions court that the allegations against Delhi University lecturer SAR Geelani, arrested under sedition charges, are “grievous” and whatever he has purportedly said is against the country.

“I am not in a position to argue today,” the prosecutor told the judge while seeking a one-day adjournment. The court will now hear Geelani’s bail plea Saturday.

During the brief hearing, the prosecutor told the court that Geelani’s bail petition was not supplied to him but the entire case stems from video footage of the event organised at the Press Club. The prosecutor also asked the Investigating Officer to bring the footage and a laptop to court.

On February 19, a magisterial court had dismissed Geelani’s bail plea after police had alleged that “hatred” was being generated against the government.

Police had told the court that an event was held on February 10 in which banners were placed showing Parliament attack case convict Afzal Guru and Maqbool Bhat as martyrs. It had also said the hall in the Press Club was booked by Geelani, who is presently in judicial custody, through his associate Ali Javed by using his credit card.

Police claimed to have registered the FIR after taking suo motu cognisance of media clips of the incident. Geelani was arrested in connection with the 2001 Parliament attack case but acquitted for “need of evidence” by the high court in 2003. The verdict was upheld by the Supreme Court in August 2005.

        The karyakartas are ready to kill or be killed to save Bharat Mata from traitors like Geelani, who is not afraid to speak his mind and causes a ruckus in the campus by speaking the truth and suppressing our Sangh's ideology based on Mythology !

          Dalit in India can abuse anything, anyone and religion and be corrupt and do any civil crime and get away with it. Now same status as consutional by birth Dalithood is being sought by Geelani and his cult.
