The report put forward by the Punjab Police admits that the policemen and their officers in command had taken refuge in a close by godown whilst the mob pelted stones at them prior to setting the houses on fire on March 9th.

The Court was astonished by this disclosure and remarked that it was unfortunate that the culprits were given a free hand by the police. This court observed that the report is sufficient to prima facie wrap up that the fundamental rights of the Christian residents of the Joseph Colony under Articles 9 and 14 of the Constitution had not been protected.
