New Delhi:

A team of Border Security Force on Saturday visited the house constable Mohammad Anees, whose house in Khajuri Khas area was set on fire during the Delhi violence. Pushpendra Rathore, BSF Deputy Inspector General (Headquarters) said that we are committed to rebuild the soldier’s doused house. “Engineers have come with us. They will repair the house of constable Mohammad Anees. BSF will provide financial assistance to the family from its welfare fund,” Rathore said.

Anees, who is currently posted in Odisha will also soon be transferred to Delhi.

Frenzied mobs torched houses, shops, vehicles, a petrol pump and pelted stones at locals and police personnel. Jaffrabad, Maujpur, Babarpur, Yamuna Vihar, Bhajanpura, Chand Bagh and Shiv Vihar are among the areas mainly affected by the riots. As of now, 34 deaths have been confirmed by the officials. Almost half of those who died in the riots suffered gunshots. 

"Charred remains of the house now stand where the house was till three days ago. In the two lanes of Kharuji Khas near Anees’s house, 35 houses were set on fire. Only one house belonging to a Muslim family was spared," according to news 18 report.

The report said, “The loss suffered by the BSF soldier’s family was perhaps greater as they had kept all their life’s savings inside: two weddings in the family were to take place in the next three months.” 

Meanwhile, the home ministry requested the people not to lay credence to any rumour. The Delhi Police has set up helplines 22829334 and 22829335 for round-the-clock assistance. These numbers are being given adequate publicity so that information about miscreants and any emerging situation may be conveyed to police.
