In his reply to the House, Shah said that no incident of riots took place after February 25 in Delhi.

Several questions were raised against Delhi Police’s role during the violence. Some of these were also articulated by opposition lawmakers during the discussion on the violence. Shah referred to these allegations to defend Delhi Police, saying that the force should be credited for containing the riots to a small geographical area and ending the violence within 36 hours.

“Questions have been asked about what the Delhi Police was doing. Police were on the ground then, police will also probe and submit a report in coming days. I would like to praise the Delhi Police for not allowing the riots to spread to other areas,” Amit Shah said.

“The police contained the rioting within 36 hours.”

While Amit Shah was replying to Lok Sabha, the Congress members walked out.
