Faisal Farooq involvement in Delhi Riots

During the riots in Delhi’s Dayalpur area of North-east Delhi, the rioters made Rajdhani school their stronghold. Faisal Farooq who was arrested for orchestrating riots is the owner of the Rajdhani school. Delhi police had arrested him along with 18 others. He was granted bail by a Court in June. A chargesheet has been filed against for his alleged involvement in the riots.

As per reports, the rioters were camping inside the Rajdhani school and fired bullets from the terrace of Rajdhani school. They used the terrace of Rajdhani school to throw petrol bombs, acid, bricks, stones, and other projectile using an improvised large iron catapult installed there. The mob used ropes to climb down from the roof of Rajdhani school into the compound of DRP convent school and set the school on fire.
