According to Delhi Police sources, Commissioner Rakesh Asthana interrogated the primary accused in the Jahangirpuri violence, Ansar, on Friday and ordered the officials to prepare a complete investigative report.
Ansar, a Jahangirpuri resident, is currently in police custody.
Delhi Crime Branch looked upon Ansar’s mobile
According to sources, the Delhi Crime Branch and local police are looking into accused Ansar’s call logs and WhatsApp chats from the Jahangirpuri unrest to learn more about his contacts during the violent episode on Hanuman Jayanti.
Moreover, Ansar may have summoned multiple people to the scene of the assault, according to police sources.
Meanwhile, the police will arrest and question those who responded to the accused’s call for help at the scene of the attack.
The link between the violence and West Bengal has also been discovered, prompting the Crime Branch to dispatch a team to the state to investigate further. The accused may have a Bangladeshi link, according to the authorities.
Nearly a dozen CCTV cameras have also been put at the Jahangirpuri area’s Kushal Chowk. The police are also preparing to put up a makeshift monitoring station where they will use cameras to keep an eye on passers-by in the area. The CCTV footage will be accessible to high-ranking officials, including DCP Northwest.
Following the violence, the police have engaged their local intelligence.
Mr. Asthana had written to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) earlier in the day, requesting that it take action against Ansar, the primary accused in the Jahangirpuri violence case, under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), according to police.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday directed that the demolition effort carried out by the North Delhi Municipal Corporation in Jahangirpuri in the national capital be kept “status quo.”
However, Delhi Police has tightened up security in the violence-plagued neighborhood with massive barricading.
