The Supreme Court today pulled up Delhi Police for failing to act professionally and to check unfortunate incidents of violence in north-east Delhi which has left 18 people dead and scores injured, but refused to entertain pleas related to the violence over the Citizenship Amendment Act, CAA.

Apex court made these remarks while hearing to a plea to shift the Shaheen Bagh protesters. The court deferred the hearing of the matter for March 23.

The apex court lashed out at the law enforcing agencies for allowing the instigators of violence to get away and said they should act independently as per law. It said that if somebody makes an inflammatory remark, police has to take action. Court said there was a need for "conducive environment" to go into the matters related to Shaheen Bagh protests.

A bench comprising Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and K M Joseph said it will not expand the scope of petitions filed in connection with Shaheen Bagh protests against the CAA by looking into the pleas on violence. It said that it is for the High Court to look into the matter. The bench stated however that it is not precluding anyone from availing any remedy as per law. The death toll in north-east Delhi communal violence rose to 18 today from 13 the day earlier. Around 200 people have been injured.
