POLICE STATION: SEEMAPURI

SHO: SHRI R.S. THAKUR
ACP:
SHRI PARSHOTTAM DASS

Police Station Seemapuri is in the easternmost corner of the District and the main residential colonies are the DDA Flats in Nand Nagri and Seemapuri.  Shri B.S. Bhola, Assistant Commissioner of Police being on leave, Shri Parshottam Dass, Assistant Commissioner of Police (H.Q.) was looking after his duties.

DEATHS

The total number of persons killed in this Police Station, as per Police Station records, are only twenty-seven.  This is not surprising as the deponents say that Police was providing fuel to burn the dead-bodies to destroy the evidence.  The affidavits filed before the Justice Misra Commission indicate 203 deaths and Citizensí Justice Committee has put the figure in its arguments at 221.  Compensation by Delhi Administration has been paid to 205.   In addition to this, there have been at least 53 cases of arson and looting as per the Delhi Administration records.

EVENTS  

The incidents of violence in this Police Station had started early in the morning of 1st November 1984. The maximum killings had taken place in Nand Nagri Colony.  There had been arson in the Gurudwara in Old Seemapuri, Nand Nagri and looting in Durgapuri Chowk and 100 feet Main Road.  In the evening of 1st November, 1984 there were killings in New Seemapuri DDA quarters.

FIR' s

 The complaint of the deponents that Police refused to register cases seems to be correct because only four cases have been registered on 1st November, 1984, four on the 2nd November, 1984 and two cases on 3rd November, 1984.  No cases were registered on 4th, 5th and 6th of November 1984.

Even though ten cases had been registered, none of the FIRs gives details of killings in Nand Nagri.  In fact, no action appears to have been taken either to stop these killings or to bring them on record.  The deponents have said that their reports were not registered primarily for the reason that they were naming the accused persons and they were asked to go away.

Case No. 57 has been registered at a later stage on 18th February 1987 by Delhi Police against Dr. Verma, a social leader and others, who were mentioned by the deponents in their affidavits.
