Digital Desk, New Delhi. Delhi Police has registered an FIR in connection with the threat calls to Supreme Court lawyers, warning judges to refrain from hearing a case related to security lapse during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Punjab. The Special Cell of Delhi Police has registered an FIR under sections 153, 153-A, and 506 of the Indian Penal Code under sections 13, 16, 18 and 20 of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA). Advocate Vishnu Jain had filed the complaint.
Jain said, “Today I received two threatening calls on the same lines as other advocates received a day ago.” Sharing the contents of the call, Jain said that the caller has challenged the sovereignty and integrity of India. Earlier on Monday, the Supreme Court Advocates-on-Record Association wrote a letter to the general secretary of the apex court seeking action against anonymous callers who took responsibility for the security lapse in Punjab last week to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Secretary, SCAORA, Joseph Aristotle S said that several advocate-on-record of the apex court received anonymous automated pre-recorded calls from number 447418365564. One on Monday at 10:40 am and the other at around 12:36 am. The caller warned the apex court judges to refrain from hearing a PIL seeking inquiry into the security lapse on the ground that the Supreme Court Courts have not been able to punish the culprits of the 1984 anti-Sikh riots. The Supreme Court on Wednesday directed that retired apex court judge, Justice Indu Malhotra, would head a committee to probe the security breach case.
