The first chargesheet in the case against 15 people was filed by Delhi Police earlier this year.

As per Delhi Police's case, the Delhi riots were part of a premeditated, deep-rooted conspiracy which was hatched by the accused persons.

It is alleged that the accused persons conspired to cause disruption of such an extent and such a magnitude that would lead to disorderliness and disturbance of law and order at an unprecedented scale.
