Delhi court asks for police complicity to be probed in Jahangirpuri violence

The court reprimanded the police for not stopping the procession on Hanuman Jayanti and instead accompanying the procession. The march reportedly did not have permission from the police.  

A Delhi court on Saturday said the possible complicity of police officers in events leading up to the Jahangirpuri violence needs to be probed.

The court reprimanded the police for not stopping the procession on Hanuman Jayanti and instead accompanying the procession. The march reportedly did not have permission from the police.

Deputy commissioner of police Usha Rangnani said in a statement that the “police has a prime and very focused responsibility of maintaining law and order, […] if any situation erupts, then police has to see to it that the situation doesn’t worsen”.

The court also said that at the fact of it, there was ‘utter failure’ of the Delhi Police in stopping the procession and the issue seems ‘to have simply brushed aside by senior officers’. The court added that the ‘complicity of the police officials, needs investigating and the liability of concerned officer, if any, needs to be fixed so such incidents are not repeated in the future.

Clashes broke out between two communities during a religious procession at Jahangirpuri on April 16, leaving eight police personnel and a local resident injured.
