Must read

NEW DELHI: In its fresh affidavit filed in Supreme Court on the ‘dharm sansad’ held in December, Delhi police said an FIR has been registered “for offences under Section 153A (promoting enmity between different groups), 295A (deliberate acts to outrage religious sentiments), 298 (hurting religious sentiments through spoken words) and 34 (common intention to commit the offence) of the Indian Penal Code”.
“Investigations will be carried out in accordance with law,” Delhi Police said. On April 22, as Delhi police submitted that investigations were being closed in the matter, an SC bench headed by Justice AM Khanwilkar had asked additional solicitor general KM Nataraj, “Can we accept this position? Has the DCP reproduced what the investigating officer’s report said or she independently applied her mind in drafting the affidavit? Does the DCP understand the nuances and other aspects of the issue involved?” Nataraj had told the bench that “we (police) will have a relook and file a fresh affidavit. The bench had given the Delhi Police time till May 4 to file a “better affidavit” and posted the matter for further hearing on May 9.
The Delhi Police’s earlier affidavit had stated: “After a deep inquiry and evaluation of the contents of the video, the police did not find any substance in the videos as per the allegations levelled by the complainants. ” “There is no use of such words which mean or could be interpreted as ‘open calls for genocide of Muslims in order to achieve ethnic cleansing or an open call for murder of an entire community’ in the speech (as was alleged by petitioners — Qurban Ali and former HC judge Anjana Prakash),” the police said and wondered why the petitioners did not lodge a police complaint if they were aggrieved by the alleged hate speeches.
