In its charge sheet, the police said that all the accused were involved in the Jafrabad violence and that Devangana is also one of the conspirators of the violence.
According to reports, the name of Umar Khalid was also mentioned in the charge-sheet filed by Delhi Police.
“The police came to the conclusion after going through the Whatsapp chat over the violence,” sources claimed.
Devangana was granted bail by Tees Hazari court in another case.

Former Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has also written to home minister Amit Shah seeking the release of the two students.
