Anti-Hindu riots: Delhi HC issues notice to centre, police over petition seeking FIR against Sonia, Rahul, Priyanka and others for hate speech

The Delhi High Court has issued notice to Delhi Police, Delhi government and the Centre in connection with a petition seeking registration of FIRs against Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra for hate speech during anti-Hindu riots in Delhi, reports Bar and Bench.

The petition also seeks the registration of hate speech FIRs against Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, riot-accused AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan, AIMIM leaders Waris Pathan and Akbaruddin Owaisi, and Advocate Mehmood Pracha.

A Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar issued the notice to Delhi Police and Centre seeking cases against opposition party leaders and several others. The petition has been filed by Lawyers Voice, through Advocate Archana Sharma.

Apart from seeking registration of FIRs, the petition also seeks the constitution of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to look into the alleged hate speeches. The matter will be heard next on April 13.

The application also carried a screenshot of an OpIndia report to state that RJ Sayema had incited a mob to gather outside police headquarters during anti-CAA protests.
