Delhi, Riots

Delhi Riots from 2020, following the Anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protests, had created ripples of political battles and casualties on the field. However, a concerned court involved in the trials following the riots expressed its dissatisfaction in the investigation process concerning the North-East Delhi riots, while dealing with charges filed against Ashraf Ali and Parvez who were accused of being active in the mob which did the rioting and attacking of Police Officers. The court stated that it is painful to note that the Standard of Investigation is Very Poor in a large number of riot cases, essentially rendering many prisoners continue to languish in police custody. The Court criticized the Delhi Police for filing half-baked charge sheets and non-appearance of Investigating Officers at the court.
