New Delhi, February 25: The Delhi High Court on Thursday listed for March 26 a batch of petitions related to last year's violence in the national capital. Communal clashes broke out in north-east Delhi in February last year following clashes between the anti-CAA supporters and protesters, which left at least 53 people dead and around 200 injured.
A Division Bench headed by Chief Justice D.N. Patel adjourned the matter and listed it for March 26. Delhi Riots: 'Normalcy Returning in Violence-Hit Areas,' Says Delhi Commissioner Amulya Patnaik.
