Clean chit to 8 people in Delhi cop Subhash Tomar’s death
New Delhi: In a significant development, the Delhi Police on Tuesday gave a clean chit to eight people, who were arrested in connection with constable Subhash Tomar’s death during the anti-rape agitation at India Gate last year.
The Delhi Police reportedly admitted in the High Court on Tuesday that the eight people, who were arrested in connection with Tomar’s death, are innocent.
Delhi Police constable Tomar had died while a crack down on agitators was on at the India Gate on December 23.
Eight men who were held by Delhi Police were charged with murder and rioting. However, with the police now giving them a clean chit, all charges against them are likely to be dropped.
The issue of dropping charges against all accused is expected to come up before the Delhi High Court on March 20.
Tomar was admitted to the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital on December 23, 2012. Two days later, he succumbed to the alleged injuries he received during the protests at India Gate seeking justice for the 23-year-old Delhi gang-rape victim, who died on December 29 in a Singapore hospital.
A video footage showed Tomar collapsing at the India Gate during the protests against the gang-rape of a 23-year-old girl in Delhi. The eight accused later challenged their arrest and said that they were being framed by the police.
