New Delhi : The Congress on Saturday accused the police of carrying out a "one-sided" investigation into the violence in Delhi and urged the Supreme Court to appoint an amicus curiae to scrutinise all such cases in which protesters and activists were being slapped with serious charges.

Party senior spokesperson Anand Sharma also said the situation is far from normal and an atmosphere of fear is still prevailing in the national capital.

Sharma alleged that the police "which allowed Delhi to burn for four days" is carrying out a "one-sided" investigation. He said in the name of action it should be seen against whom the action is being taken.

"What is the definition of hate speech? The speeches made by the BJP leaders were not hate speeches and the protests and 'dharnas' by citizens are a threat to society as per the cases registered," he told reporters.
