The court’s remark came after counsel appearing for the police submitted a status report of the case where it failed to provide names of officials deployed in police control room (PCR) vans during the incident and told the court that the assistant commissioner of police (ACP) of the area concerned had been suspended.
A division bench of Chief Justice D Murugesan and Justice VK Jain, expressing displeasure over the report, said: “We directed you (police) to give the names of officials posted on the three PCR vans in the areas. Today also we are not convinced, because names of officers responsible have not come in.”
After police counsel Dayan Krishnan said the ACP of the PCR command had been suspended, the court said: “Is he (ACP) only responsible? Why not DCP and CP suspended?”
The court also pulled up Delhi Police for not following the Supreme Court’s order on removing tinted glasses from vehicles.
“Who are the officials responsible for these lapses? Why were dark glasses and curtains not removed after the Supreme Court order? Why no further action was taken,” said Justice Jain.
