The Delhi High Court on Tuesday observed that the protest planned by Umar Khalid and others against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC) was a premediated plan and would prima facie be covered by the definition of 'terrorist act' under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).
