Delhi clashes: HC gives Centre, police 4 weeks to respond on inaction

Feb 27, 2020 16:30 IST

The Delhi High Court on Thursday adjourned the hearing in Harsh Mander's plea filed in the wake of riots in Delhi to April 13. The Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar also made the Centre a party in the case and gave them and the Delhi Police four weeks to file a counter-affidavit. The order follows submissions made by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta that at present it is not conducive to file FIRs for hate speech. He said, FIRs will be registered at an appropriate time. He went on to assert, "At this juncture when all stakeholders are working to ensure normalcy, any hurried intervention may not be conducive". Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police told the High Court that 48 FIRs have been registered over the violence so far. The matter will now be heard on April 13.
