Indian PM Modi government transfered the Judge who named BJP politician for the deadly violence against Muslims in Delhi
NEW DELHI - Indian PM Modi government transfered the Judge who named BJP politician for the deadly violence against Muslims in Delhi.
Indian PM Narendra Modi government has transfered the judge who named ruling party BJP politicians for instigating the bloodletting.
As the official death toll in four days of violence climbed to 38 with at least 200 injured, the Modi government issued the order to transfer Delhi High Court’s Justice S. Murlidhar to the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
Justice Murlidhar had rapped the Delhi Police for inaction against politicians of the Bharatiya Janata Party and had played their videos for the police officers to watch how they poisoned the air with hate speeches against Muslims.
Thousands of Muslim women have been staging protests against a communally framed citizenship law, and the videos showed the leaders asking supporters to shoot them.
The chief justice who took over the case from his transferred colleague gave the government a comfortable four weeks on Thursday to respond to the charges.
Justice Murlidhar had also ordered police to accompany ambulances that were unable to reach predominantly Muslim localities to rush the dead and the injured to hospitals.
As rescue operations swung into action, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal demanded strict punishment for the instigators of violence “and twice the punishment if they are members of the Aaam Aadmi Party.”
