Additional Solicitor General Aman Lekhi today argued that the petitions filed in connection with the violence that broke out at Jamia Millia Islamia in December last year were merely based on opinion and agenda. .What works in political sphere cannot work in legal sphere.ASG Aman Lekhi argued. .A batch of petitions was listed for hearing before the Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan. .The prayers in the petitons include grant of compensation and constitution of an independent probe team in connection with the police brutality inside the Jamia campus following an anti-CAA protest. .[JAMIA VIOLENCE] Delhi HC begins hearing pleas alleging police brutality; Petitioners press for independent probe [Day 1].In its written response to the petitions, the Delhi Police has contended that allegations of police brutality are an “utter falsehood”..[Jamia Violence] Allegations of police brutality an “utter falsehood”; Police acted with utmost restraint: Delhi Police tells Delhi HC.Arguing on behalf of Delhi Police, ASG Lekhi today argued that police intervention was necessary on the night of the incident and was related to a legitimate concern. .They say Police aligned with a particular community and entered without permission. Thus there should be an enquiry and compensation. This is a self serving accusation. Totality of circumstances has to be seen.ASG Lekhi contended.Submitting that a university campus was not an enclave where policing could not reach, ASG Lekhi remarked, ."Merely because a place is a university and there are students, to say that any action taken is unwarranted is utterly flawed..".He pointed out that the petitions were based on newspaper reports and video footage, which could be relied upon by the Court under the Evidence Act. .Their opinion is being represented as a case..There is nothing before the Court to support the indictment of an official agency.ASG Lekhi said. .The Court was also informed that the violence was investigated and an FIR was registered by Delhi Police and even charge sheets have been filed. ."Action is being taken pursuant to the violence but it was not mentioned in the petitions..The accused in the criminal cases have not said anything, alleged bias.", ASG Lekhi said he claimed litigation must have an element of seriousness, unlike a comment. .ASG Lekhi clarified that any person could move the court for a grievance that is made out in law. However, in the present case, the "petitions are loosely worded" and came with "material which could not be relied upon", he added. .Hearing in the case would continue on August 21.
