Delhi Riots: CPI Says Police ‘Trying To Frame’ Leaders Critical Of BJP

Raising doubts about the impartiality of the probe, the CPI said the investigation by the Delhi Police is a ‘conspiracy’ aimed at criminalising those who speak against human rights violations and injustice, rather than catching the real perpetrators of the violence.

New Delhi: The CPI on Thursday accused the Delhi Police of “trying to frame” in the February riots cases political leaders and activists who are critical of the “anti-people policies” of the BJP-led government.

In a supplementary charge sheet filed recently by the Delhi Police in the February riot cases, CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury, Swaraj Abhiyan leader Yogendra Yadav, economist Jayati Ghosh and Delhi University professor Apoorvanand have been named allegedly for “provoking and mobilising” anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protesters.

Some of those named have also been charged with — based on the statements of three students already arrested in the case — asking the protesters to go to “any extreme”, spreading “discontent” in the community by calling CAA and proposed National Register of Citizens (NRC) anti-Muslim, and organising demonstrations to “malign the image of Government of India”.

“The Party deplores the role of Delhi Police in investigating the North-East Delhi riots targeting leaders and activists including CPI National Executive Member Annie Raja, also General Secretary, National Federation of Indian Women (NFIW),” the CPI statement said.

“The peaceful and democratic protests against the CAA were a legitimate, constitutional expression of people’s dissent against the law and it was the effectiveness of the protests that shook the BJP which is now attempting to portray the protests as a conspiracy to cause riots in North-East Delhi,” it said.

The CPI said, “It is indeed shocking that the Delhi Police is trying to frame political leaders and activists who are critics of the anti-people policies and programs of the current regime.”

“The investigation by the Delhi Police itself is a conspiracy and is aimed at criminalising those who speak against human rights violations and injustice, rather than catching the real perpetrators of the violence,” it said.

CPI leader Annie Raja, leaders of other political parties including Salman Khurshid, Brinda Karat, Kavita Krishnan and activists including Prashant Bhushan, Anjali Bhardwaj, Yogendra Yadav, Harsh Mander, Rahul Roy, Apoorvanand and Saba Dewan have been named in the charge sheet citing disclosure statements of those arrested, CPI general secretary D Raja said.

“All these people extended solidarity with the peaceful protests led by Muslim women and now this is being twisted into a grand conspiracy,” the statement said.

“In contrast, the glaring absence in the charge sheets on the role of leaders associated with the BJP, who gave inflammatory speeches, is unmissable,” it said.

“The CPI along with other opposition parties had even given a memorandum to the President of India highlighting these concerns and had asked for the institution of an enquiry into this investigation under the Commission of Inquiry Act, 1952, headed by sitting/retired judge(s),” it added.

Earlier, the Delhi Police had said the names were part of the disclosure statement of the accused which were recorded “truthfully”.

Arvind Kejriwal

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said he would meet Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar and request him to direct neighbouring states to implement a low-cost technology developed by Indian Agricultural Research Institute to manage crop residue.

The technology, called Pusa Decomposer, involves a liquid formulation prepared using Pusa decomposer capsules, fermenting it over 8-10 days and then spraying the mixture on crop residue to ensure speedy bio-decomposition of the stubble. Capsules worth Rs. 20 can effectively deal with 4-5 tonnes of raw straw per acre.

“I will meet the Union environment minister in a day or two and request him to direct neighbouring states to implement this technology,” he told reporters during a visit to the institute.

Farmers in Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh set their fields on fire to quickly clear off the crop residue before cultivating wheat and potato every paddy harvesting season between October 15 and November 15. This practice is attributed to the alarming spike in pollution levels in Delhi-NCR during winters.
