The Delhi Police informed the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) that its control room received 4,000 SOS calls in the wake of Delhi Anti-Hindu riots on February 25, the first day of US President Donald Trump’s visit to India. The calls were made by locals to narrate the horrific incidents of violence, arson and clashes.
It was earlier reported that some of the mob involved in the Delhi Anti-Hindu riots came from nearby areas of Ghaziabad and Meerut in Uttar Pradesh. The vital information came to light during a coordination meeting between the Delhi and the Uttar Pradesh police.
The meeting was held at the DCP office in North-East Delhi and had DCP Northeast Ved Prakash Surya, Meerut IG Praveen Kumar, and SSP Ghaziabad, besides the Joint Commissioner (Delhi Police) Alok Kumar. The cops suspect that a group of rioters came from Deoband and stayed in Mustafabad in North-East Delhi prior to the riots that claimed 53 lives.
The Delhi police said that they “collected all postmortem reports and DNA profile as well as fingerprints of all unknown dead bodies. Examining all injured persons, recording their statements. Examining all witnesses in the cases so that no aspect is left out. CCTV footage of all liquor shops in the area has been analysed.”
It further added, “Bad characters of all police station of North East Delhi have been rounded up and are being examined giving special focus on their presence/role during the riot. Collected clips from social media, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok uploads and gathering details of Whatsapp groups to retrieve chats. Analysing phone records of criminals and suspects in the riot-hit areas.”
44 localities reported large-scale violence during the riots that took place in last week of February. Case files from 5 police stations, namely Khajuri Khas, Karawal Nagar, Sonia Vihar, Welcome and Jaffrabad have also been collected. 1922 rioters had been identified out of 336 belong to Uttar Pradesh. The Delhi Anti-Hindu riots were fuelled by Islamic Supremacy and a direct consequence of the city being held hostage by rabid Islamists for their sinister objectives in the name of anti-CAA protests.
