Ground Report News Desk | New Delhi

Delhi Violence: After 48 hours of unchecked violence shocked the national capital, the Delhi High Court on Monday came down hard on the Police saying it failed to act professionally. The High Court in a stern warning said that it will not allow another 1984 to happen on its watch.

“No, no we should never allow another 1984…especially under the watch of the Court and under your (Delhi Police) watch. We have to be very, very alert,” justice S Muralidhar said. The Court was hearing a plea seeking safe passage for those injured over the past few days in the Delhi Riots.

The apex court lashed out at the law enforcement agencies for allowing the “instigators of violence” to get away and said they should act as per law without waiting for somebody’s nod. “If somebody makes an inflammatory remark, police have to take action,” it said.

A bench comprising Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph said it will not expand the scope of petitions filed in connection with the protests at Shaheen Bagh, against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA), by looking into the pleas on violence.

“We will not go beyond the scope of the petition before us. Several unfortunate incidents have taken place. The question before us is whether the people aggrieved can sit at a place called Shaheen Bagh. We will hear only this issue,” the bench said.

The spate of violence has left at least 20 dead and over 150 injured in northeast Delhi as Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal called for rolling in the Army to control the situation.
