On the violence in Delhi, petitioner Ajay Gautam has demanded the High Court to register an FIR against Aam Aadmi Party and some Congress leaders in this case. With this, Ajay Gautam said in his petition that behind the anti-CAA demonstrations, there should be an NIA inquiry into the support of anti-national forces.
Delhi Police has also filed its reply regarding the deep conspiracy behind these demonstrations. Investigation by Delhi Police alone is not sufficient in these cases. NIA investigation of this deep conspiracy is necessary. The High Court has asked the Delhi Police to respond to the pleas made by the petitioners till next week. The hearing in this case will be held again next week.
