  • The Crime Branch of Delhi Police will file 14 chargesheets on Friday in connection with a Tablighi Jamaat event and the communal violence in northeast district in the city, officials said.

    The charge sheets will be filed in Saket court against the 294 foreigners belonging to 14 countries, including Malaysia, Thailand, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka and several African nations, police said. Earlier on Tuesday, the city police had filed 20 charge sheets against 82 foreigners.

    NCP chief Sharad Pawar asked who gave permission for the religious congregation of Tablighi Jamaat at Nizamuddin in New Delhi, which has emerged as one of the major Covid-19 hotspots in the country.

    Till last week, 58 members of the Islamic group from the state were missing. Some of them switched off their phones, hence it was difficult to trace them, he said.

    The police have also registered a case against 13 local residents, who provided shelter to them in different mosques and caused the spread of coronavirus infection, Additional Superintendent of Police (Zone-1) Rajat Saklecha told PTI on Friday.

    The faction had dissociated itself from Maulana Sa’ad-led Tablighi Jamaat and Nizamuddin Markaz in 2016, cancelled its scheduled jamaat visits to seven states scheduled to start on March 16, after a meeting of its “council of elders”, said a member, who did not wish to be identified.

    Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh on Tuesday said 50 of the 1,400 people who returned to the state attending the religious congregation of Tablighi Jamaat in Delhi have been incommunicado, and warned of stern action against them if they do not approach the government.

    All RSS programmes for workers have been cancelled till June. Vaidya, however, said that several Muslims were helping government officials in tracing the contacts of the Tablighi Jamaat, which should be appreciated.

    At least 9,000 people had participated in the religious congregation at Tablighi Jamaat's headquarters at Nizamuddin in the national capital last month. The event became a key source for the spread of COVID-19 in India as many of the participants travelled to various parts of the country for missionary work.

    After registering a preliminary enquiry, the agency started its probe into the financial transactions of Tablighi Jamaat which had attracted headlines after many of its members, were found to be carriers of COVID-19.

    Tablighi Jamaat had hit headlines earlier over a religious congregation held at Nizamuddin in Delhi in March this year amidst coronavirus pandemic.

    The congregation, attended by people from across India as well as other countries, was later found to have been a coronavirus hotspot. Search is on now for the participants who left Delhi so that they can be tested for infection and quarantined if necessary.
