Gulfisha Fathima, a defendant in the Delhi riot cases, told the Delhi High Court on Friday that there was no evidence she had given a speech or used chili powder or encouraged women to gather. He said that the allegation of Delhi police is baseless, in such a situation she is entitled to bail.

A special court of Judge Siddharth Mridul and Judge Rajnish Bhatnagar is hearing Gulfisha’s appeal against the court’s order to deny her bail in the case registered by the crime division of the Delhi Police.

The counsel who appeared for Gulfisha argued in court that no Gulfisha material has been recovered. At the time Gulfisha was arrested, police had recorded only one witness’ statement. However, counsel argued that the said statement is general in nature and not specific to any incident. The statements of the named witnesses were included to fit the prosecution’s emerging narrative.

In another case, the court subpoenaed the Tihar Jail Superintendents and the Law Officer (Prisons) for withdrawing the possibility of telephone conversation with the family of Delhi riots accusing Sharjeel Imam, Gulfisha Fatima and Shifa-ur-Rehman. The lawyers who appeared before Judge Amitabh Rawat’s court of additional hearings said the ability to call was provided under rule 631 of the Delhi Jail Rules, 2018 but was discontinued after the notice.

The court was told that a letter from the Superintendent Jail No. 8 is on file stating that the ability to call was given to co-defendant Meeran Haider as he believed that Rule 631 does not cover UAPA. The court ordered the Law Officer (Prisons) (HQ) to appear in person on January 7. The case will now be heard on January 7.
