A public interest litigation (PIL) petition has been filed before the Supreme Court seeking probe by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) into the recent communal violence at Delhi's Jahangirpuri and in seven other States during Ram Navami. .The PIL filed by lawyer Vineet Jindal, has asked the Court to issue directions for a probe by NIA to find out whether there were any links between violence and "anti-national and international organisations". Jahangirpuri witnessed incidents of violence during Hanuman Jayanti (April 16) while similar scenes of communal violence were reported during recent Ram Navami procession in several States. "The acts of violence attacking the devotees during procession by firing and stone pelting and vandalising vehicles creating communal tension is a threat to the sovereignty of the country and instigate the Hindu community to retaliate as religion forms the essence of the values of the community," the plea said. .The petitioner contended that the series of events indicate the involvement of terror funding, possibly by organisations like ISIS, to target Hindus. These are attempts to destabilise "the social structure of India" and thus an NIA probe is imperative, the petitioner contended. Jindal also submitted that he has already filed a complaint with the investigation body on April 15 regarding the violence during Ram Navami. .Another lawyer has moved a letter petition before Chief Justice of India NV Ramana, to take suo motu cognisance of the Jahangirpuri riots.Advocate Amritpal Singh Khalsa urged the top court to exercise it's "epistolary jurisdiction" and constitute a committee headed by a sitting judge of the apex court, to conduct an impartial probe into the riots.
