Embarrassing that Jafar, Darapuri arrested without evidence: Chidambaram

NEW DELHI: The main leader of Congress, P Chidambaram, said Sunday that it was shameful that Sadaf, SR and Pavan Rao were arrested for the violence without any evidence against them. He also said it was a shocking admission by the police that there is no evidence of his participation.

Sadaf Jafar, S R Darapuri and Pavan Rao Ambedkar were released on bail after police did not admit evidence of their involvement in the violence. Shocking admission, he said.

If that was so, why did the police arrest them in the first place? And how the magistrate detained them in custody without looking at the evidence, he asked.

The law says 'find evidence, then arrest.' The reality is 'first arrest, then look for evidence.' Embarrassing, tweeted Chidambaram.
