On Monday, a PIL was filed in Supreme Court , seeking probe in the recent communal riots that shook Delhi’s Jahangirpuri and in seven other States during Ram Navami. The PIL says that the probe should be done by the National Investigation Agency (NIA)
Lawyer Vineet Jindal, filed the petition requesting the Court to issue directions for a probe by NIA , for finding the any link between violence and “anti-national and international organisations”.
The incident of violence in Jahangirpuri happened on Hanuman Jayanti (April 16) however same type of violence had shown its colors during recent Ram Navami procession in several States.
“The acts of violence attacking the devotees during procession by firing and stone pelting and vandalising vehicles creating communal tension is a threat to the sovereignty of the country and instigate the Hindu community to retaliate as religion forms the essence of the values of the community,” the plea said.
The petitioner thinks that the series of events indicate the involvement of terror funding, possibly by organisations like ISIS, to target Hindus.
He further says that these attempts were with an intention of destabilizing the social calm of the Nation. He believes that an NIA probe is imperative.
The petitioner also claims of filing a complaint with the investigation body on the violence during Ram Navami.
