New Delhi [India], May 26 (ANI): A Delhi Court on Tuesday extended the judicial custody of media coordinator of Jamia Coordination Committee and others till June 25, in a case related to allegedly planning a conspiracy to incite communal riots in northeast Delhi.
Patiala House Court sent Safoora Zargar, Jamia Coordination Committee media coordinator and Meeran Haider to judicial custody till June 25.
On April 13, Special Cell of Delhi Police arrested Safoora Zargar, Jamia Coordination Committee media coordinator.
