The police did not allow the victims of rioting to file first information reports (FIRs or police complaints) or when they filed FIRs, they clubbed many cases of murder and arson that took place in different places under one FIR, according to Cobrapost.

Police officers were also guilty of dumping bodies of victims somewhere else to minimise riot-related crimes near their police stations, Cobrapost claimed.

"The corpses lying near Delhi Cantonment were dumped off at Rajinder Nagar," revealed Amreek Singh Bhullar, SHO at Patel Nagar, in the sting.

The revelation is a result of an investigation by the news portal to expose the complicity of Delhi Police officers in the anti-Sikh riots.

It added that senior police officers did not allow their subordinates to open fire on rioters, and that even the fire brigade refused to move to areas where cases of arson were reported.
