Additional Meetings Judge Amitabh Rawat stated that the victim was the victim of a premeditated attack. According to PTI, the court stated that an eyewitness, Sunil Kumar, provided a detailed picture of how Deepak was slain.
According to Kumar, a Muslim mob traveling from Kardampuri Pulia to Pulia Gokulpur grabbed Deepak and beat him to death. He claimed to have hidden behind a wall and saw the murder through a crack in it
Kumar was able to identify the four accused individuals based on their names.
The court stated that the delay in recording the witness’ statement was due to his being in shock and having returned to his village owing to the coronavirus issue. He pointed out that Kumar was Deepak’s buddy and that his comment had not “suddenly appeared out of the blue.”

Clashes erupted between supporters and opponents of the Citizenship Amendment Act in North East Delhi between February 23 and February 26, 2020. The violence claimed the lives of at least 53 individuals, the majority of them were Muslims.
