Karkardooma Dist court has directed Delhi Police to file an FIR and to investigate the alleged killings during Northeast Delhi riots.

The court also observed how police could claim the allegations were false without an investigation.
Delhi Police made submission in the court that a case was registered of theft on the complaint by one as Mohammad, which was unconnected to the alleged murders, and Ahmed’s complaint was clubbed with this FIR. Ahmed.
Court observed how police can be expected to investigate Ahmed’s allegations, which are different from the chargesheet. It noted that it was clear the FIR registered by police would “not cover the required proper investigation in the allegations leveled by the present complainant”.
