“Just file FIRs. You showed action in lodging FIRs for arson, why aren’t you showing the same for registering FIR for these speeches,” Justice S Muralidhar told the Delhi Police.

The Delhi violence has caused death to at least 26 people including a Delhi police officer and Intelligence Bureau officer, and over 180 have been injured in the clashes. Seeing the situation, the Delhi High court asserted that there should not be another 1984-like event in the country.

The above decision comes in after the court witnessed four videos of hate speeches; those by BJP leaders Kapil Mishra, Anurag Thakur, Parvesh Verma, and Abhay Verma.

In a short video, Mr. Verma was caught urging people to gun down traitors, shortly before lonesome gunmen opened fire at anti-CAA protesters in Delhi.

No 1984 situation 

Justice Muralidhar produced strong words to the government to work together with Delhi police to counter the violence that troubled parts of the national capital for a fourth consecutive day.

“We can’t let another 1984 situation happen in this country; not under the watch of this court”, Justice Muralidhar noted.

The court also asked Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia to tour violence-hit areas for “confidence-building measures”, and directed Delhi Police to take quick measures on the situation.

“We discovered that one IB officer has been beaten and killed. These things should be instantly looked into”, the judge added.
