An Explanatory Notes
The names of all persons accused of having planned or executed or participated in the various incidents of violence described in this Report have been withheld, except where they have been specifically mentioned in a FIR lodged at a police station or in an affidavit before a court of law. Wherever the names have not been disclosed, they have been substituted by cross-marks, i.e. xxxx. We are prepared to disclose all the names of the accused in the event of a judicial inquiry into the Delhi violence.
The reference to castes and communities in the Report does not imply any prejudice or aspersion to them but merely constitutes a faithful record of the evidence given by the survivors relating to the identification of the assailants. Furthermore, this reference does not imply that all persons belonging to the specified castes and communities participated in the violence, rather that some of the persons who participated were identified by the victims as belonging to them.
This Report mentions the “Nanaksar Report” in several places as one of the valuable sources of information. The “Nanaksar Report”, sponsored by the Nagrik Ekta Manch, New Delhi, derives its name from the fact that it is based on interviews with inmates of the relief camp in Nanaksar Ashram located in the Trans-Yamuna area of the Capital.
