The Delhi High Court has issued notice to the Central and Delhi governments and the Delhi Police on an impleadment plea seeking FIRs against activist Harsh Mander, actor Swara Bhaskar, RJ Sayema of the Radio industry, Aam Aadmi Party MLA Amanatullah Khan and others.

The applicant, advocate Sanjiv Kumar, has sought a probe by the National Investigation Agency against the accused persons.

A Division Bench of Chief Justice D.N. Patel and Justice C. Hari Shankar heard the petition.

Another impleadment plea

Notice to the parties concerned have also been issued in another impleadment application filed by the Hindu Sena president seeking FIRs against AIMIM (All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen) leaders Asaduddin Owaisi, Akbaruddin Owaisi and Waris Pathan for their alleged hate speech.

Mr. Kumar has sought the registration of an FIR against Mr. Mander under Sections 124A, 295A, 153, 153A, 504, 505 and 506 of the Indian Penal Code.

Both the applications have been moved in relation to the petition filed by Mr. Mander, seeking FIRs against three BJP leaders for their alleged hate speeches and an inquiry into the Delhi riots .
