Delhi riots: Cops tells HC plea for giving videos of protests versus CAA not maintainable
Delhi High Court. Submit.
The city police has told the Delhi High Court that a plea moved by JNU student and Pinjra Tod activist Devangana Kalita, implicated in a case related to northeast Delhi riots, looking for copies of videos of demonstrations against the Citizenship Modification Act (CAA) was not maintainable.
The problem concerning maintainability of the plea was raised before Justice Suresh K. Kait by Extra Solicitor General S.V. Raju, standing for the Delhi Authorities.
” Let the respondent [police] submit an affidavit on the maintainability aspect within a week, with advance copy furnished to the other side. Reaction thereto, if any, be submitted within five days afterwards,” the Court stated and noted the matter for further hearing on February 4.
Ms. Kalita, in her plea filed through advocates Adit S. Pujari, Tusharika Mattoo and Kunal Negi, has actually sought copies of videos of protests against the CAA and other electronic information offered with the authorities in the matter that were submitted together with the charge sheet in the case.
While Ms. Kalita remains in judicial custody in the case under the stringent anti-terror law Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, she has been given bail in the event related to the riots in Jaffarabad area.
Earlier, before the high court, Ms. Kalita’s counsel had looked for copies of a pen drive consisting of video between February 22, 2020 and February 26, 2020; DVD containing video clips of event on February 25, 2020 and CD containing photos and video of the accused; DVD containing video clips of protests of January 5, 2020 and DVD consisting of video under Jaffarabad metro station in between February 22, 2020 and February 23, 2020.
Common violence had actually broken out in northeast Delhi on February 24 last year after clashes between the citizenship law fans and protesters spiralled out of control, leaving at least 53 people dead and around 200 injured.
