Delhi Riots 2020: Adv. Mehmood Pracha moves Court claiming that case files related to raid conducted at his office were manipulated by Special Cell

On Wednesday, April 07, 2021, Advocate Mehmood Pracha moved a Delhi Court alleging that the Special Cell had manipulated case files in connection with a case related to raids conducted by the Delhi Police at his Office, and further sought preponement of hearing in the matter. 

Pracha made the allegations following a clerical error in the court’s order in which he was asked to come at 4 pm, but the matter was taken up at 2 pm. Due to his lack of presence in court(ex- parte), the matter was listed for further hearing on Saturday, April 24, 2021.

Additionally, the Court also ordered Police to supply Pracha with a copy of the FIR.

Earlier this year, a raid at Pracha’s office was undertaken by the police in connection with an FIR alleging that he had tutored a witness to initiate a false Delhi riots case.
