In June  Khalid tweeted he has asked for police protection. “Filed a complaint with @DelhiPolice regarding Ravi Pujari’s death threat to Jignesh and me. He said that I am on his HIT LIST! I have asked for police protection, given the fact that this is the same person who had previously also issued similar threats of killing me in Feb 2016 (sic),” he said.

Father filed police complaint in 2016
In 2016, Khalid’s father, Syed Qasim Illyas Rasool filed a police complaint, claiming he received a phone call “threatening to kill” his son if he doesn’t leave the country.

A sedition case has been filed against Khalid, former JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar and Anirban Bhattacharya for allegedly organising an event against the hanging of 2001 Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.
