In connection to the IB employee Ankit Sharma, for instance, the Delhi Police mentioned the entire “chronology” of events that led to his death and said that a group of anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protestors had conspired the murder. However, it entirely omitted the mention of BJP leader Kapil Mishra, even after the enormous controversy and clear evidence against him.
The non-mention of Kapil Mishra and other BJP leaders in chargesheets was furiously brought up in one of the riot hearings by Justice S Muralidhar earlier, who was transferred to another High Court soon after.
There have been 783 FIRs and 70 chargesheets so far in connection to the Delhi riots, while a few more are expected to come up in the next few days in view of the 90-day deadline.
