Watch: Why a Lawyer Representing Delhi Riots Victims Has Questioned Police Probe

Abdul Ghaffar is fighting close to 50 riot cases – and about half of them pro bono.

Abdul Ghaffar, a 40-year-old lawyer, is fighting about 50 cases related to the Delhi violence in February on his own. He is not charging any fees for nearly half of these.

Ghaffar spoke to The Wire about his own experience in the Muzaffarnagar riots seven years ago. Raising questions over the investigations and arrests in the Delhi riots, he says there is an attempt to set up a concocted narrative by the police.
