The Delhi high court on Monday sought a response from the Centre, police and the Aam Aadmi Party government on a plea seeking directions to the police to preserve CCTV footage of the recent riots in northeast Delhi.

 

A bench of Chief Justice D N Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar issued notice to the authorities and listed the matter for further hearing on March 27.

The plea filed by the Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind said Delhi Police should be directed to preserve CCTV footage of the riot affected areas from February 23 to March 1 and should not remove debris without collecting evidence from the site.

It also sought first information reports against those involved in the violence and an Special Investigation Team comprising retired judges of the Supreme Court and the high court.
