The Delhi High Court on Monday extended the Interim Relief provided to Delhi Police for depositing Rs. 25,000 imposed on it by the Court.

Justice Subramonium Prasad postponed the hearing in light of Additional Solicitor General (ASG) SV Raju’s statement on behalf of the Delhi Police that the respondent Nasir, the complainant in the Riots case, had not filed an affidavit in the petition.

ASG further asked the Court to extend the Interim Relief granted to the Delhi Police to deposit Rs. 25,000.

The Trial Court was hearing a Revision Petition filed by Station House Officer (SHO), PS Bhajanpura, who was contesting an Order directing them to register a separate FIR against Mohd. Nasir, who had been injured in the Delhi riots.

While criticising the Delhi Police, Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav stated that the SHO Bhajanpura and other supervising officials had failed terribly in performing their statutory duties.

In July, the Court sought Nasir’s response to Delhi Police’s petition contesting the Order passed by the Trial Court imposing Rs. 25,000 fine on Delhi Police.

In its appeal against the aforementioned order, Delhi Police claimed that the Additional Sessions Judge imposed a cost without providing the Deputy Commissioner of Police the opportunity to make his submissions, which violated the Principles of Natural Justice.

The matter will be heard next on November 15.
