NEW DELHI—The Delhi High Court on Friday rebuked the Delhi police for arresting three Muslims in connection with killing of another Muslim during the anti-Muslim riots in Northeast Delhi in February 2020.
The case pertained to one Shahid, who died after suffering gunshot injury on the rooftop of Saptrishi building.
In the chargesheet, police had accused Junaid, Chand Mohammed and Irshad of being involved in the murder of Shahid. All of them were granted bail on Friday.
While granting bail, Justice Suresh Kumar Kait observed that “it is hard to believe that a communal riot can be used by the petitioners (accused persons) to cause death of a person of their own community”.
The court also noted that the three Muslim accused had tried to save the members of the Hindu community. “If they were really involved in this communal riot and wanted to cause harm to the members of the other community, they would not have tried to save the lives of the above-named members of the other community”, the Judge said in the bail order.
