This charge sheet is related to the violence on February 25 in the Brijpuri area of North East Delhi. A 22-year-old boy named Monis was beaten to death by a mob of miscreants with sticks, who then ran away after snatching his mobile phone, all the while abusing a particular community.

Monis was murdered at the time when he was returning home from Rohini with sweets from his father. The seven accused were arrested in this case and charged with murder. The Delhi Police told the court that it had recorded statements of 35 witnesses in the case while filing the nearly 300-page chargesheet.
