“Can’t Allow A Repeat Of 1984”: Delhi HC Pulls Up Govt As Death Toll Climbs To 22

The Delhi High Court has asked administration to set up helplines to help victims, private ambulances to be provided for safe passage of victims. The court has also directed the officials to set up shelters for rehabilitation along with basic facilities.

Justice Muralidhar remarked: “I am really amazed at the state of affairs of the Delhi Police” and asked the court staff to “play Kapil Mishra’s video clip in the courtroom.”

At least 21 people have been killed, including a Delhi Police officer and an Intelligence Bureau officer, and over 180 have been injured in the clashes, which began Sunday afternoon as groups for and against the controversial citizenship law clashed in Maujpur, where Kapil Mishra was speaking.

“We can’t let another 1984 scenario happen in this city; not under the watch of this court”, Justice Muralidhar observed, adding, “We heard that one IB officer has been attacked. These things should be immediately looked into”.

The court was referring to anti-Sikh riots that killed over 3,000 people in Delhi alone. Source NDTV
