New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has said that it will re-hear the bail pleas of Sharjeel Imam, Khalid Saifi and others, in the Delhi violence case.

This decision of the court comes after Justice Siddharth Mridul, who had reserved the verdict in at least three bail pleas, was elevated as the Chief Justice of the Manipur High Court, reported PTI.

A Division Bench of Justice Suresh Kumar Kait and Justice Shailender Kaur will begin hearing the appeals in January 2024.

The bail pleas have been filed by Sharjeel Imam, Khalid Saifi, Gulfisha Fatima, Meeran Haider, Shadab Ahmed, Athar Khan, Shifa ur Rehman, and Salim Khan.

The charges were filed against Tahir Hussain, Umar Khalid, Khalid Saifi, Ishrat Jahan, Meeran Haider, Gulfisha Fatima, Shifa-Ur-Rehman, Asif Iqbal Tanha, Shadab Ahmed, Tasleem Ahmed, Saleem Malik, and others.

The Delhi Police’s appeal to cancel the bail granted to Ishrat Jahan will also be heard by the Bench. The Special Bench, previously headed by Justice Mridul, had denied bail to Umar Khalid in the case in October last year.
