Late into the evening of February 25, armed and masked men were setting fire to jhuggis (slum dwellings) and vehicles in Mustafabad in north-east Delhi, while the Delhi Police looked on.

Near a group of burning homes, other residents of the slum – who identified themselves as Hindus from the Mahavat jaat – told The Wire that the jhuggis belonged to Muslims who had fled the area the previous day. They said the fires were started by men shouting ‘Jai Shri Ram’, and others said the men were members of the Bajrang Dal.
