The High Court also directed the police, represented by Delhi Government Standing Counsel (Criminal) Rahul Mehra and Advocate Chaitanya Gosain, to make efforts to locate and produce before it the missing person - Hamza. 

During the hearing, Mehra told the court that the Delhi government will facilitate the petitioner Ansari Mohd Arif to visit all the hospital mortuaries where bodies of people who died in the riots have been placed. 

With the directions, the bench listed the matter for hearing on Friday to be taken up with other similar matters. 

"The Delhi Police is also directed to publish the details of all the unidentified bodies that are lying in the various hospital mortuaries -- both under the control of the Centre and the Delhi government -- along with photographs and other details, including specifics of post-mortem and DNA samples, on their official website" said the bench of Justices Siddharth Mridul and IS Mehta.
