New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday released a list of 115 people lodged in different jails in connection with the Republic Day violence in order to help farmers’ delegation which approached him in relation to 29 missing ryots.
Addressing a press conference, Mr Kejriwal said, ‘We are issuing a list of 115 people who have been arrested after January 26 violence and are lodged in various Delhi jails. I hope it helps people looking for their family members who went missing after participating in Kisan Andolan on January 26.
The Chief Minister said, “I can understand the plight of family whose members have not returned home and are missing.’
The AAP chief said it is the responsibility of each government to trace the missing persons and inform their families.
‘We have collected data of people arrested by Delhi police in connection with the violence,’ Mr Kejriwal said and said that his government will help to find the farmers missing from protest sites.
“If some people are still not found, I will make all efforts to track them down,” he further said.
‘The issue of farmers missing from the protest sites is a matter of grave concern. We are trying our best to connect them to their families,’ he said.
The delegation of the Samyukt Kisan Morcha, which met the Chief Minister last evening, also demanded a judicial probe into the alleged “conspiracy against the farmers’ protest” and a medical board to examine those in jail.
However, Mr Kejriwal did not comment on the demand for judicial probe into the incident.
