The Delhi Police Special Cell questioned former JNU student Umar Khalid for around three hours in connection with the Northeast Delhi riots, following which his phone was seized.

A senior officer said: “He was asked where he was during the Northeast Delhi riots and the December Jamia violence.”

An FIR was registered on March 6 based on information provided by an informer to sub-inspector Arvind Kumar. As per the FIR, Kumar said the informer told him the violence was a “premeditated conspiracy”, allegedly hatched by Khalid and others.

The case was transferred to a Special Cell, which has been asked to investigate a “larger conspiracy”.
