Sharjeel Imam: Jail authorities have found such items which are banned in jail from the cell of Sharjeel Imam, a JNU scholar and accused of Delhi communal riots, lodged in Tihar Jail. Tihar authorities on Monday told a Delhi court that during a search of the cell of Delhi communal riots accused Sharjeel Imam, a wristwatch, which is a banned item, was found on June 30.

Sharjeel Imam is in judicial custody since 2020

Significantly, Sharjeel Imam is accused of making inflammatory speeches against the government on the issue of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC), which allegedly led to violence outside Jamia Millia University in December 2019. . Imam is also facing sedition charges for alleged inflammatory speeches and has been in judicial custody since January 2020. After the searches last month, Sharjeel Imam had filed a petition alleging that the search ‘sevadars’ had assaulted him. Explain that servitors are prisoners, who after good conduct are allowed to help the prison authorities.

Sevadars got wrist watch
The court of Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat had on July 23 asked the Tihar Jail authorities to appear before it after viewing the CCTV footage. During the hearing, the Tihar Jail authorities denied the allegation that Imam was assaulted and instead accused him of abusing the servants and resisting the search. In his oral statement in the court, a jail official said, “Initially he (Imam) was opposing the search. This was his main agenda. He then alleged that three people (sevadars) were throwing his books. He kept abusing him continuously. Meanwhile, the servitors found a wrist-tied watch. He also had a bag, which was not allowed to be searched.

Sharjeel Imam put these arguments in the court
The official said that when asked about the watch, Imam had claimed that he had the necessary permission letter, which he had kept in a book and mistakenly sent it to his home in Bihar. “Right now we are waiting to get the permission letter,” the official said, adding that it was a ploy by the Imam to put pressure on the jail authorities. However, advocate Ahmed Ibrahim, appearing for Imam, opposed these submissions and said that the wristwatch is not a prohibited item, but a prohibited item, for which he had taken permission from the then jail superintendent in 2020. The lawyer said that it is clear from the CCTV footage that there was not a single incident when he had opposed the search. Instead he came out and objected that his books were being thrown on the ground. August 16 has been fixed for the next hearing in the matter.
