Yogendra Yadav Writes Letter to Delhi Police Commissioner on Witch-Hunt of Anti-CAA Protestors.
– “Is it an inquiry into a conspiracy or is the inquiry a conspiracy”, asks Yogendra Yadav
– Questions Delhi Police on lack of action against JNU attackers, Hate Mongers like Anurag Thakur and Kapil Mishra.
– The inquiry should not further erode public confidence in police
New Delhi, 1 May 2020: Yogendra Yadav writes a letter to Delhi Commissioner of Police expressing concern over the framing of anti-CAA protestors as instigators of the Delhi riots.
While students and activists like Meeran Haider, Safoora Zargar, Khalid Saifi, and Ishrat Jahan are in jail, Union Mister Anurag Thakur, and ruling party leader Kapil Mishra roam free despite publicly spewing hate and giving provocative speeches. The letter points out that despite publicly available evidence no enquiry has been made against the two, neither have they been called in for questioning. Moreover, even after almost 4 months have passed since the attack on JNU, no action has been taken against the goons who brutally assaulted many students inside the university.
In his letter, Yogendra Yadav reminds Delhi Police of its constitutional duty to uphold the law, and deliver justice. It would be a grave tragedy if those responsible for the Delhi Riots, where over 50 persons died, would go unpunished. He warns the Commissioner, that this selective witch hunting and framing of activists reflects poorly on the entire institution of the Indian Police. He urges him to not compromise the reputation of the Police or soil the uniform that it wears.
