[Breaking] "This city has seen enough violence," HC asks Delhi Police to take a conscious decision on registration of FIRs by tomorrow

The Delhi High Court today directed the Delhi Police to take a "conscious decision" on the registration of FIRs against political leaders alleged to have made speeches that led to the riots in the capital city over the past few days. The matter will be taken up again tomorrow.

The Court has clarified that the Commissioner of Delhi Police will not only consider the allegedly inflammatory clips featuring BJP leaders Anurag Thakur, Parvesh Verma and Kapil Mishra but also other similar clips that are in the knowledge of the Delhi Police.

It should seriously consider the consequences that would ensue with every day's delay in registering the FIR not only on the basis of the video clips that have been played in Court but all video clips of speeches/actions by anyone, whosoever it may be, which disclose ex facie the commission of an offence, bearing in mind that the rule of law is supreme and that no one is above the law
