Faceoff: HC calls Delhi riots ‘pre-planned’, netizens divided over ‘planner’ | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI. The Delhi High Court (HC) has said the last year’s riots did not take place on the spur of the moment, rather it was a “pre-planned” and “premeditated” conspiracy to disturb law and order in the capital. The three-day violence left over 50 dead and hundreds injured.

Justice Subramonium Prasad, while refusing to grant bail to one Mohd Ibrahim in the case concerning the alleged murder of Delhi Police head constable Ratan Lal, observed that there was a systematic disconnection and destruction of the CCTV cameras in areas near the place of the incident and “innumerable rioters ruthlessly descended with sticks, dandas, bats, etc. upon a hopelessly outnumbered cohort of police officials”.
Twitter was abuzz with reactions over observations made by HC. While many alluded to people like former AAP councillor Tahir Hussain, Sharjeel Imam as the key conspirators, others claimed that Kapil Mishra‘s speech incited violence.

‘Hope for more accountability now’

‘Those trying to save terrorists must now apologize’

‘Massive failure of law and order and Delhi Police’

‘Mishra was falsely blamed’

‘Farmer protests pre-planned too?’
