DMK leader and Member of Parliament T.R. Balu on Wednesday demanded a judicial inquiry by a committee headed by a retired judge of the Supreme Court into anti-Muslim pogrom unleashed in northeast Delhi last week.
Speaking in the Lok Sabha during a discussion on Delhi violence, the former Union minister Balu said the February 24 violence in north-east Delhi was triggered by BJP leader Kapil Mishra’s statements.
Stating that the Delhi Police had entered Jamia Millia Islamia campus without permission and assaulted the students, Balu said the ABVP caused trouble in JNU on January 5, while Delhi Police stood by and watched.
DMK leader said students, minorities and the judiciary are under attack. Balu said the Prime Minister and the Home Minister should personally reach out to the riot victims to instill confidence in them. He demanded that damaged schools and madrasas in violence-affected areas of Delhi should be repaired and compensation paid to the victims.
