A Delhi court granted bail to a man accused in the northeast Delhi riots of 2020 while casting serious doubts on the testimonies of police witnesses as the complainant in the case had not called the cops on the day of the incident.
Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav granted bail to Shah Alam, who was accused in the case in which a 19-year-old man sustained gunshot injuries.
The court said that the injured Prince Bansal “did not specifically name the applicant in his complaint dated 02.03.2020”.
On the identification of the applicant by constables Pawan and Saudan, the court stated, “It is hardly of any consequence as this Court is not able to comprehend as to why said Beat Constables waited till the recording of their statements under Section 161 CrPC to name the applicant when they had categorically seen and identified the applicant indulging in riots on the date of incident and the applicant being previously known to them.”
