AAP on continuing violence and shameful role of Delhi Police :
Open defiance of the Supreme Court directions by the Delhi Police on Wednesday is an extremely serious issue, which clearly shows that this force is ready to defy even the rule of law to please its political masters.
It is difficult to imagine on what basis Mr BS Bassi gathered the courage to ignore the directions of the top court of the country to provide adequate security to journalists who were covering the court hearing in the case of JNU Students Union President at the Patiala House Court Complex.
Not only were the journalists beaten up for the second time in three days in full public view by the BJP goons, but they also targeted senior Supreme Court lawyers, who were asked by the Supreme Court to assess the situation at the Patiala House Court Complex.
Delhi Police continued to remain a mute spectator when all this was going on.
These goons again entered the court rooms and attacked innocent people again. Such scenes are unheard of in the national capital and the attitude of Delhi Police makes the citizens of the national capital hang their heads in shame.
The sequence of incidents on Wednesday clearly indicate that the Delhi Police, in order to please the BJP’s central government has defied the top judiciary of the country and allowed goons to target the journalists almost on a routine basis now.
If two pillars of the democracy – Judiciary and Media – are targeted in the national capital by the police without any fear of law, then future of democracy is clearly under threat. more
