A city court on Thursday issued a fresh notice to Delhi Police Crime Branch and the Delhi Metro with regard to violent Sunday protests against the gangrape of a 23-year-old paramedic student.
Two of the eight persons arrested for rioting during Sunday protests told the court that they were travelling in the Metro at the time and were not present at India Gate. Following this, the court had sought answers from Delhi Metro and Delhi Police on Wednesday.
The fresh notice was issued after police told court that the case had been transferred to the Crime Branch. The court has sought a reply from the agencies on Friday.
Kailash and Amit Joshi, arrested on Sunday, had filed a plea before the court seeking that court summon CCTV footage of Rithala and Rajiv Chowk Metro stations to prove that they had been travelling in the Metro when the protesters turned violent at India Gate.
Other than Kailash and Amit, six more were arrested for participation in unlawful assembly, rioting, causing damage to public property and causing causing injuries to police personnel.
All eight were granted bail by the court on Monday.
Spokesperson of DMRC Anuj Dayal said the agency had received the court notice and would "respond appropriately, according to the court's orders".
The CCTV cameras and the footage recorded is controlled by Central Industrial Security Force (CISF). Sources said the CISF received a request from the Crime Branch on Thursday to share footage from Rithala and Rajiv Chowk Metro stations of December 23 from 10 am onwards. "We'll be able to provide it by late Thursday," a source said.
