New Delhi, June 2

A local court on Friday sentenced a man to rigorous imprisonment for seven years and his father to three years of simple imprisonment in two cases, saying the father, instead of showing the “right path” to his son, himself “acted ghastly”.

The court, which was hearing the cases related to the 2020 northeast Delhi riots, also observed that communal riots were among the most violent forms of public disorder that afflicts society.

Additional Sessions Judge Pulastya Pramachala was hearing two cases against Mithhan Singh and his son Jony Kumar who were convicted of various offences, including those under IPC Sections 147 and 436.

“Convict Jony Kumar shall undergo rigorous imprisonment for seven years and convict Mithhan Singh shall undergo simple imprisonment for three years for offence punishable under Section 436 of the IPC,” the judge said in the orders.

“Communal riot is that menace, which poses a serious threat to the sense of fraternity among the citizens of our nation. Communal riots are treated as one of the most violent forms of public disorder that afflicts society and it leads to not only loss of life and property but also causes great damage to social fabric,” the judge added.
