Delhi High Court pulled up Delhi Police for detaining a man who had helped someone injured in a roadside brawl, and ordered a vigilance inquiry into the incident.
Taking suo moto cognisance of a report, a division bench headed by Chief Justice Ajit Prakash Shah and Justice Manmohan said, “Why can’t your officer, who is responsible for the incident, be booked?”
The court directed the special commissioner ‘vigilance’ to conduct an inquiry and sought a detailed report by Sep 16, the next date of hearing.
Sonu, a metal merchant from Faridabad, was beaten up by police when he took a man injured in a roadside brawl to a hospital near the Welcome Metro Station in northeast Delhi. The court also asked the victim to appear before the registrar general to express his grievance.
