Delhi riots 2020: Court imposes fine on police, calls probe ‘callous & farcical’

-

- Advertisment -

On Wednesday, a Delhi court fined the police Rs 25,000 for failing to file a separate FIR on the complaint of Mohammad Nasir, who lost one of his eyes during the Delhi riots in February 2020.

Karkardooma Court Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav slapped a fine of Rs 25,000 on Bhajanpura police station’s Station House Officer and his supervising officers, The Quint reported.

In an strongly worded court order dated 13 July, that comes down heavily on the police for their ‘callous’ investigation, Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav noted that the concerned petitioner (SHO of Bhajanpura police station) and his supervising officers (from the Delhi Police) ‘had miserably failed in their statutory duties in this case’.

“I do not find any merit in this revision petition. The same accordingly stands dismissed with a cost of Rs.25,000/- (Rupees Twenty Five Thousand Only) which shall be deposited with Delhi Legal Services Authority by DCP (NorthEast) within one week from today and the said amount shall be recovered from the petitioner and his supervising officers, who have miserably failed in their statutory duties in this case after holding a due inquiry in this regard,” the order reads.

“I am happy that justice was served after one year of administrative exploitation,” he said in a phone interview with Muslim Mirror,” Muslim Mirror quoted Nasir, as saying.

He said he has constantly been receiving threats from police officials. “They have been asking me to withdraw the complaint or change my lawyer (Mahmood Pracha) or file a false complaint,” he added.

Mohammed Nasir Khan, a 34-year-old Delhi government employee and former CISF officer, was shot at a few feet from his home on February 24 during an anti-Muslim pogrom. In his left eye, he suffers permanent blindness.

A plastic surgery was conducted, but his vision is lost.
