Delhi Riots Will Be Remembered For Delhi Police’s Failure To Conduct Proper Investigation: Court

The Delhi court raising question on Delhi Police investigation into last year’s Delhi Riots case said that it appeared as if the constable was planted as a witness.


A Delhi court has reprimanded the city police for its investigation in the last year’s riots. The court has said that the investigation of the worst riots after partition, as done by the Delhi Police, is sad. “When history looks back on it, it will hurt the guards of democracy,” the court said. In this case, Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav acquitted Shah Alam (brother of former councillor Tahir Hussain), Rashid Saifi and Shadab from the case.

The court said that this investigation has proved to be insensitive and inactive. The court said that it appeared as if the constable was planted as a witness. Judge Vinod Yadav said that this case is a waste of hard-earned money of the taxpayers. The court also said that this is nothing but the attempt to throw dust in judiciary’s eyes.

No evidence against the accused in Delhi riots

The court also noted that there was no CCTV camera at the crime scene to ascertain whether the accused were actually present there. There are no eyewitnesses to this incident nor is there any evidence of criminal conspiracy.

The judge said- “I can not stop myself from saying that when people look back on this worst riot after partition, then even after modern techniques, seeing the failure of the police to conduct a proper investigation, the guards of democracy will be hurt.”

He also said that it seems as if the police have solved the case without trying to trace the witnesses, technical evidence or the real accused by just filing the charge sheet.
