He also said that a total of 2,647 people have been detained and added that whatever arrests were made are based on the evidence.
He also added that only driving license and voter ID card are being used for face identification of the culprits involved in the Delhi violence). “Aadhar data is not being used for it as wrongly reported by some sections of media,” he added.
Earlier in the day, leading the discussion on Delhi violence from the Congress, Kapil Sibal slammed the central government over the recent incidents of violence and said that the government will do anything for protection of cows, but not human beings.
“There is a provision in the Constitution, Article 48, in which it is written that the cows should not be slaughtered. It is correct. But you can do anything for the protection of cows, not for the protection of humans? Do we need to bring another Article in the Directive Principles of State Policy? Is the protection of cows more important than the protection of human beings and human lives? Did you ever think about this? There is a massive displacement of people, who are leaving their houses,” Sibal said.
Claiming that police were helping those who were indulging in violence, Sibal said the result was the death of innocent people in the violence.
“The violence happened because of the virus, the communal virus that was spread by the people who were giving speeches. I ask the Home Minister why FIRs were not registered against those who delivered those speeches,” he added.
