Cops asked to file report on Shinde's terror remarks

New Delhi,Feb 11,2013, PTI:

 A court here on Monday directed Delhi Police to file a detailed status report on a complaint seeking lodging of FIR against Union home minister Sushilkumar Shinde for his Hindu terror remarks.

Metropolitan magistrate Viplav Dabas ordered police to give the detailed report containing point-wise replies to the allegations in the complaint and in the court during arguments. The magistrate fixed February 25 as the deadline after the prosecutor sought time to file the report.

The police, in its report, had earlier said that the complaint of RTI activist Vivek Garg was “motivated” and bears “misrepresentation of facts”. It had said that the evidence supplied by the complainant does not “disclose any offence worth (taking) cognisance by the police.”

During the arguments, Garg's counsel Ajay Goel contended that an FIR should be registered against Shinde as the offence of “promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion is clearly made out against him.”

The court also directed the police to take excerpts from the CD containing the speech delivered by Shinde on January 20. The police informed the court that a case cannot be registered against Shinde as there was no conspiracy.

“From the transcription of the speech, it is nowhere reflected that the home minister intended to incite any class of community or person to commit any offence against any other class or community.” police had said.

“Further, the uttering of the words with the deliberate intention of wounding the religious feelings of other persons is an offence, but the same is lacking in the speech,” police added in its earlier report, explaining the action taken.
