Court asks cops to file fresh Anna report

NEW DELHI: A trial court on Monday asked Delhi Police to file a fresh status report with documentary proof on a complaint against Anna Hazare and his team for "instigating" people against the government during their recent anti-corruption campaign.

The court, which was scheduled to pass an order on the complaint filed by Haryana's Satbir Singh against Anna and his team, felt the status report filed by the police on September 16 was not backed by any documentary evidence and, therefore, sought the fresh report. Metropolitan magistrate Tyagita Singh asked the police file the report on October 3.

"Notice be issued to the station house officer (of Kamla Market police station) along with a copy of this order to file a fresh status report along with documentary proof of permission and the recorded cassettes of speeches of respondents (Anna and his team) and also to file documentary proof regarding death of the youth Sandeep for further consideration of the court," the court said.

Quoting a news report, Satbir Singh had alleged that Sandeep (21) had participated in Hazare's hunger strike and died of pneumonia, for which he had held Team Anna responsible.

Delhi Police had on September 16 told the court that no criminal case is made out against Hazare and his team. Regarding the plea in the complaint that Hazare had instigated the people to lay a siege of the houses of Members of Parliament and ministers to press their demands, the police had said they have not received any complaint in this regard.
