Delhi Riots 2020

NEW DELHI: Recently, Delhi Court directed the police commissioner to appoint a regular Public Prosecutor while hearing a case related to the 2020 northeast Delhi riots expressed dissatisfaction with public prosecutors appearing on an ad hoc basis.

The bench headed by Additional Sessions Judge Pulastya Pramachala directed the Commissioner of Police to ensure the “appointment and regular appearance of a prosecutor in this case”. Court judgment came after a Special Public Prosecutor submitted that he was appearing in the case on an ad hoc basis without any concrete order from the police department.

Court observed – “The matter is referred to the Commissioner of Police to get enquired as to why a proper regular public prosecutor for this case was not ordered till date in the backdrop of the fact that the previous prosecutor stopped appearing in the matter,”
