Tablighi Jamaat case: 36 foreign nationals released, court reprimands Delhi Police
According to a report in The Indian Express, a Delhi court has released 36 foreign nationals arrested in March this year on charges of participating in a Tablighi Jamaat Ijtama (religious conference) in Nizamuddin, Delhi.
The court said the plaintiff failed to prove that the accused were present at the headquarters of the Tablighi Jamaat. He was accused of violating Corona’s guidelines for joining the Tablighi Jamaat Ijtama. Police claimed that these people violated the Corona guidelines and because of this they later spread the Corona to 14 states.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Arun Kumar Garg, while ruling in the court, reprimanded the SHO of Hazrat Nizamuddin police station and the investigating officer of the case and said that he had made a mistake in identifying the accused.
The accused told the court that at that time (in March when Iktzma was present at the Markaz), he was not present at the Nizamuddin Markaz and the police arrested him from different places. He also alleged that the police had arrested him on the instructions of the Union Home Ministry for trapping him under the conspiracy.
The court accepted his argument.
The court said, ‘It is beyond my comprehension that I.O. Inspector Satish Kumar did 952 foreign nationals out of a total of 2343 people violating Koro’s guidelines, without conducting an identity parade (TIP).
The court also said that SHO Mukesh Walia knew how many people had gathered at the Marks from the beginning, but over time he did not take any action to get them removed.
Delhi Police has charged 952 foreign nationals for violating visa rules and Corona guidelines. More than 900 people pleaded guilty because they did not want to stay in India to fight the case. But 44 foreign nationals decided to stay in India and fight the charges against them. Eight of them were acquitted by a court in August because no evidence was found against them. The remaining 36 foreign nationals were acquitted by a Delhi court on Tuesday.
