A Delhi court on Monday dismissed the bail application of three accused in the death of 20-year-old Dilbar Negi, whose charred body was found during the violence in the city's North-East area in February. The Delhi Police had found Negi's decapitated body from a sweet shop at Chaman Park near Main Brijpuri Road on February 26. He had come from Uttarakhand to the capital city six months prior to his death. The FIR in the case was registered on the statement of an assistant sub-inspector of police, who stated that communal riots, arson, looting and vandalism took place in the area and rioters from "a particular community" set Anil Sweet Shop on fire due to which Negi died. Three persons — Ashraf Ali alias Khalnayak, Mohammad Faisal, Rashid alias Monu — were arrested and were sent to judicial custody. They later moved a bail application. While dismissing their bail plea, Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav observed that the riots were "horrific and led to loss of an innocent life" as well as damage to the property of the general public.
