Mob identified and killed Muslim Men

2 Feb 2020, Delhi : “Caller Hindu hai aur Hindu logon ne ek Muslim ki bike me aag laga di hai jo usko bhi jalane wale h Muslim naali men kood gaya hai”. (The caller is a Hindu. Hindus have set a Muslim man’s bike ablaze. They were also going to set him on fire, and he jumped into the drain). This call was to the PCR (Police Control Room) during the communal violence and has led the investigators zero in on one of the important eye-witnesses who revealed how a mob carrying weapons identified and killed Muslim men and threw their bodies in a drain at Bhagirathi Vihar. The three chargesheets, related to the murder of Hamza, Bhure Ali aka Salman and Aamin mention the PCR call first made at 22:05 hours, wherein the caller informed the cops about a Muslim man’s bike being set on fire and the man jumping into the drain to escape the attackers. Twenty minutes after his first call, the caller once again dialed the police at 22:25 hours the same day to say: “Yahan par Musalmano ko mara ja raha hai aur bike me aag laga di (Muslims are being killed and bikes are being set on fire).” Recorded under 161 Cr.PC, the investigators are considering the disclosure statement of the caller, whom they have identified as a resident of Ganga Vihar, as a key piece of evidence to bring the culprits to book.
