The court said that the probe in the case seemed to have been done in a perfunctory manner, which caused prejudice to the accused persons.

Additional chief metropolitan magistrate Samar Vishal granted the relief noting that the chargesheet filed by Delhi police was sketchy and dismissive in nature and there is no investigation on the identity of the accused persons.

New Delhi: A Delhi court has acquitted BJP leaders Ramesh Bidhuri, Vijay Goel, Vijay Joli and Balkishan in a case of rioting and instigating public to attack police personnel during a protest in the national capital in 2006.

Additional chief metropolitan magistrate Samar Vishal granted the relief noting that the chargesheet filed by Delhi police was sketchy and dismissive in nature and there is no investigation on the identity of the accused persons.

 

While refusing to put the accused on trial,  the court said: “The evidence about the accused’s involvement is so bleak and inadmissible that there exists no suspicion against them, which is a sine qua non for framing of charges against Them.”

The  court said that the probe in the case seemed to have been done in a perfunctory manner, which caused prejudice to the accused persons.

The court said: “Before hearing of charge, the IO, SHO and ACP of Parliament Street police station were called in court for clarification that why they picked only some and made them accused and exonerated the rest. No satisfactory explanation came on behalf of them.

 

It was admitted by constable Surender Singh that the names of these chargesheeted persons were revealed to him only because these names were being taken by the demonstrators.
