Jahangirpuri Violence Case: The case of violence in the Jahangirpuri area of Delhi has reached the Supreme Court. A petition has been filed in the court demanding the formation of a committee to investigate the whole matter. The petitioner has requested that a committee be constituted under the chairmanship of the present judge to investigate the whole matter and that the entire inquiry be conducted under the supervision of the committee.

Advocate Amritpal Singh Khalsa in his petition said that the same court had reprimanded the Delhi Police in 2020 for failing to stop the riots. The image of the police has been tarnished and people have also lost faith in it. The petitioner alleged that the Delhi Police's investigation so far had been biased and that the rioters were being shielded. The lawyer said this was the second time riots had taken place in the national capital.
