Delhi Violence: SC Refuses to Entertain Pleas, Terms Incident Unfortunate


While hearing in the case of violence in Delhi over the Citizenship Amendment Act, the Supreme Court on Wednesday reprimanded Delhi Police for the clashes in Delhi and termed unfortunate the incidents of violence in the national capital but refused entertain pleas on them. The inflammatory statements of BJP leader Kapil Mishra are also being blamed for the violence in Delhi. The court’s remarks on such an occasion clearly means that action should be taken against leaders who make inflammatory statements for violence in Delhi.

Delhi has been in the grip of violence for the last three days. Violence is constantly taking place from Jafrabad-Maujpur to Bhajanpura and Karaval Nagar. So far 20 people have lost their lives in the violence and more than 250 people are injured. To control the rioters, orders have been given to shoot on sight. Late last night, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval visited areas affected by the violence and met with top police officers. Mr Doval visited areas such as Seelampur, Jaffrabad, Maujpur and Gokulpuri Chowk to take stock of the law and order situation.

Regarding the matter, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said that this situation is very worrying. The police have failed to handle the situation despite all possible effects. CM Kejriwal has said that to deal with this situation, army help should be taken and curfew should be imposed in the riot affected areas.
