new delhi: After remarking that the Delhi Police note citing "resentment among Hindu community" over the arrest of "some Hindu youth" in the north-east Delhi riots cases was "mischievous", the Delhi High Court on Friday said the note issued by Special CP (Crime) Praveer Ranjan to probe officers caused no prejudice to people of any community.
Justice Suresh Kumar Kait said the accused have already been chargesheeted in the riots cases and the July 8 order issued by the senior police officer will cause no prejudice.
Reports said the note cited inputs of "resentment among the Hindu community" after the arrest of some "Hindu youth" in connection with the riots cases and asked officers to take due care while making such arrests.
Mahajan said a total of 535 Hindus and 513 Muslims have been chargesheeted to date in north-east Delhi riots related cases.
It said the observation made by the court will not cause prejudice to Ranjan or any other officer in their service careers.
