On 26th December, 2020, a Local Court of Delhi by referring a report of senior police officials directed a Delhi Police Investigation Officer and Station House Officer to remain present in the Court. According to the report, the accused and his lawyer were manhandled by few individuals including police officials at the time of entering the Tihar Jail compound.

The aggrieved lawyer of the accused had filed an application by stating that, on Friday, 25th December, 2020, when the lawyer and the accused was entering the Tihar jail compound, few unknown individuals suddenly started attacking the lawyer and the accused. The report also stated that, few police personnel also entered the jail and manhandled the accused as well as the lawyer and forcefully took away the accused in a car.

Assistant Commissioner of Police had been directed by Metropolitan Magistrate to file a report with respect to the location of the accused and the actual state of the investigation in this case under his own signature. According to the Court this is a severe disregard and cannot be tolerated at all. The Investigating Officer involved, as well as the SHO, has been ordered to appear before the Judge.
