'Conscience shaken': Delhi HC dismisses bail plea of riot accused

Apr 15, 2021 15:31 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The Delhi High Court has dismissed the bail plea of the riot accused who pointed a gun at a cop and also fired in the air during the communal violence in the city last year saying the video clips have shaken the court’s conscience. 

Justice Suresh Kumar Kait said whether or not accused Shahrukh Pathan had the intention to kill the complainant police official or any person present in the public with his open air pistol shots, it is hard to believe that he had no knowledge that his act may harm anyone present at the spot.

Pathan, 24, whose photo showing him pointing a pistol at unarmed Delhi Police head constable Deepak Dahiya during the communal riots in February last year went viral on social media, was arrested on March 3, 2020 from Uttar Pradesh's Shamli district.
