Police arrest 7 more in Delhi anti-Hindu riots, arrests include Muslim rioters on charges of killing other Muslims: Details here

The arrests have been made on the basis of several video footages which the Delhi Police acquired from public and social media.

The Delhi Police Special Investigation Team (SIT), have made seven more arrests in three different cases in connection to the communal riots that recently shook the national capital. The accused have been booked on charges of murder, attempted murder and rioting, reports Times of India.

In the first case, the SIT arrested three men identified as Mohammad Firoze, Chand Mohammad and Rayees Khan, all belonging to the Chand Bagh area. They have been charged for the murder of a youth named Shahid. Shahid was allegedly murdered on February 24th near his house in Dayalpur area. The arrests have been made on the basis of several video footages which the Delhi Police acquired from public and social media.

As per the TOI report, while examining these footages closely, the police identified the trio, shooting Shahid while he stood atop a house in the area. On the basis of this footage, the Delhi police nabbed the three on Thursday. Meanwhile, a manhunt has been launched to nab their associates.

In the second case, Delhi police arrested two men, named, Shoib and Imran, on charges of murdering a man identified as Mehroom. The incident was reported from Subhash Mohalla in Bhajanpura on February 24. The police identified the duo through the video footage shot through the mobile phones of locals. The duo is now being interrogated in order to get the lead on other rioters.

Interestingly, in both the above cases the Muslim men have been booked for killing members of their own community. It was earlier speculated that gun-wielding, petrol bomb-throwing rioters may have hurt or killed members of their own community in the frenzied violence. These arrests seem to strengthen those arguments.

In the third case, two men named Gulfam and Tanveer were arrested pertaining to a case lodged against them for rioting in Dayalpur. These two were also identified through video footage shot on a mobile phone, acquired by the Delhi police.

Earlier in the day, the SIT had identified six burqa-clad women who were part of the mob which attacked Delhi Police personnel.

According to reports, the SIT has identified at least six burqa-clad women after examining several video footages which revealed how these women accompanied the Muslim mob mercilessly attacked head constable Ratan Lal during violence in the Gokul Puri locality on February 24, leading to his death.

A large mob violent rioters, including burqa-clad women, was seen viciously attacking a small group of police personnel with sticks, stones and even guns in the CCTV footages revealed by the Delhi police. DCP Shahdara Amit Sharma was seriously injured while another ACP was injured trying to rescue him during that attack. Head constable Ratan Lal was killed by that violent mob.

The SIT had earlier arrested seven people in connection with the murder of a Delhi Police Head Constable Ratan Lal during the anti-Hindu riots in the national capital that has taken the lives of more than 50 people.
