SEQUENCE OF EVENTS
There was no incident in this Police Station on 31.10.84 and the trouble started only on the morning of 1.11.84. The wireless log indicates flow of information to and from the Control Room as well as the Police Posts regarding various incidents. Trucks were being set on fire and looted on the G.T. Karnal Road and outer Ring Road. In addition to this, there were a number of incidents of arson at various places including Jahangirpuri. Pitampura and Shalimar Bagh. The incidents had continued on 2nd November particularly in Jahangirpuri. Some incidents had occurred even on the 3rd and 4th November. This shows that the situation continued to remain out of control even up to 4th November.
most serious incidents are the killings in ‘J’ Block of Jahangirpuri as
narrated by quite a few persons in their affidavits and cross-examination
before the Misra Commission. Besides
these killings, the others are in respect of truck drivers who were coming
from Haryana and Punjab or had already reached and were in their trucks
to the report of the then SHO Shri Roop Chand, the total number of deaths
was only 19. According to
the initial figures of Delhi Administration, the total number of deaths
was 57. The Ahuja Committee
has mentioned 36 deaths. However,
it would appear that since this P.S. covers the new Subzi Mandi area where
a large number of trucks had come from outside and quite a few drivers
appear to have been killed and their vehicles burnt, the total number
of deaths should be on the higher side.
In any case, the total number of deaths in this Police Station
should be closer to the figures of 60.
against the large number of incidents occurring in the jurisdiction of
this Police Station the FIRs registered are very few, on 1st, 2nd
and 3rd November. Only
1 FIR each day has been registered, namely FIR No. 910 on 1st November,
FIR No. 911 on 2nd November and FIR No. 916 on 3rd
A number of arrests have been shown in each of these cases but they do not find mention in the statement prepared by the police.
FIRs 912, 913, 914 and 915 are under section 188 IPC that is breach of section 144 Cr. P.C. It is clear that the police was trying to minimize the offences. All of them were registered on 2.11.84.
