Ramlila maidan crackdown: Court summons 6 cops, probe still on

A Delhi court has summoned six policemen, chargesheeted for the June 4-5 midnight swoop by police at Ramlila Maidan here on Baba Ramdev's supporters protesting against corruption with the police saying that probe is still on to identify others involved in lathi charge.

Metropolitan Magistrate Anil Kumar summoned Sub-Inspector Sushil Kumar, Head Constable Vijender and constables Ravi, Dinesh, Tejinder and Krishan.

The six have been indicted for endangering life and personal safety of others.

The court took cognisance of the charge sheet on June 4, exactly an year after the incident.

"The charge sheet has been filed by the IO after the probe conducted in compliance of the directions given by the Supreme Court of India in Writ petition (filed in the incident). "I have perused the charge sheet and documents filed by the IO. I hereby take cognisance of offence under section 336 IPC (act endangering life or personal safety of others)," the court said.

"Let accused persons named in the charge sheet be summoned through IO for July 7," it directed.

The accused policemen named in the charge sheet have been identified with the help of video footage procured from various news channels.

The footage has also been annexed with the charge sheet.

The investigating officer in the case also told the court that further probe into the incident is going on in order to identify other accused persons.

"IO has further stated that further investigation in this matter is still going on for identification of other persons involved in the commission of offence and supplementary charge sheet may be filed if other persons are identified," the court said.
