Whatsapp group chat allegedly related to the communal violence

News Desk: In the latest development in the Delhi riots case, a Whatsapp group chat allegedly related to the communal violence that took place in the month of February this year, reveals that it could be a planned conspiracy.

These chats are part of the charge sheet filed by the Special Cell of Delhi Police in the conspiracy case of Delhi riots and it has now been taken cognizance by a magistrate. Times Now has accessed the excerpts of the WhatsApp chats between February 22 and 23 that are allegedly related to Delhi riots.

“Jamia has the credibility to do it nationwide. But everywhere, one Jamia boy/girl must be present to execute this”, a person named Shahzar Khan wrote to Jamia Millia Islamia student Safoora Zargar in a Whatsapp chat, reports Times Now’s Nikunj Garg.

According to the police, the execution they are talking about on Whatsapp is a part of the entire mobilisation of people which finally lead to violence – be it in forms of sit-ins, be it in forms of ‘chakka jam’, be it in form of pelting stones or targeting the policemen.

Targetting the cops and subsequently invoking a reaction from them and the action taken by the police after that is also part of the conspiracy, the police said in the charge sheet.

In response to the message, Zargar replied, “Shahzar chup ho jao na bhai, tum saare plans yahin likh doge toh execute kya karoge? (please keep quiet, if you write all the plan here then what will you execute?).

Safoora Zargar, who was arrested in connection with Delhi riots in April, was released on June 23 as the Delhi High Court granted bail after Centre agreed to release her on humanitarian ground. She was three months pregnant at the time of her release.

Zargar has been booked under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. She is the media coordinator of the Jamia Coordination Committee.

The prosecution has alleged that she made an “inflammatory speech” on February 23 that led to violence and rioting in North East Delhi, leaving at least 53 people dead and hundreds injured over the next three days.

A man called Ovais Sultan Khan warned the other people in the Whatsapp group about the possible repercussion locals will have to face due to their actions. He said in the group that you all are putting the lives of locals in danger.

“I am not an educated one. But I would like to tell you that some local people have evidence of what all you were saying last night about your plans for road blockade – your proposal to incite violence. So, don’t play with fire it will not hurt you. It will hurt us badly,” he wrote.
