Report of the Delhi Minorities Commission Fact-finding Committee on the North-East Delhi Riots of February 2020
Friday 17 July 2020#socialtags
Excerpt from the preface: ". . . The report is fairly comprehensive and even-handed but due to the non-cooperation of Delhi Police, the fact-finding committee could not present a more comprehensive and incisive report. The committee has also studied the issue of compensation given to the victims by the Government of Delhi so far. It has come up with a number of recommendations to be implemented by the Central and state governments and by the Delhi Minorities Commission. The most important recommendation is for the government to set up a high-powered probe headed by a sitting or retired judge of the High Court. We will be writing to both the Central and state governments in support of these recommendations.
We hope that this report will help government, courts, media and general public to understand the sad events of late February 2020. Our most cherished contribution will be to contribute to the creation of an atmosphere where the kind of violence that shattered the lives of thousands in the North East Delhi becomes a thing of the past, never to be seen or experienced again.
