Omar Khalid has filed an application in the Sessions Court claiming that the chargesheet filed against him should be shown on the jail computer as he has complained that he has not read the chargesheet yet.
Last year, student leader Omar Khalid, accused in the Delhi riots case, filed an application in the Sessions Court seeking access to the chargesheet on a computer in jail. Omar Khalid said in his application that he had not yet seen the chargesheet filed against him, in which case he should be shown the chargesheet from the jail computer.
Khalid also alleged that the police had leaked the chargesheet to the media. They said, ‘I have not received the chargesheet yet. This violates my right to a fair trial.
Omar Khalid said in his application that in the last 20 days I had told the superintendent of Jail No. 2 that if he had a chargesheet, he would show it to me on a pen drive, but he said that a pen drive was not allowed.

He said ‘I have not yet received the chargesheet. All I know so far is that it has been published or printed in the media. The police have leaked the complaint to the media, it is a violation of my ‘right to a fair trial’. I am requesting the court that we should give the chargesheet as soon as we get the chargesheet of the jail after knowing the chargesheet.
The next hearing in the case is set for January 19.
