Jahangirpuri violence: Court denies bail to alleged arms supplier


NEW DELHI: A Delhi court has dismissed the bail application of a person who allegedly supplied a pistol used in Jahangirpuri violence, saying the allegations against the accused were serious.

"There is communal tension in the area at this stage. The charge sheet is yet to be filed. The allegations are serious against the applicant," the court said in an order passed on Friday.
