Jamia Teachers Solidarity Association released a 180 page report — ’Framed, Damned and Acquitted: Dossiers of a Very Special Cell’ — at a widely attended public event on 18 September 2012 at the Jamia Milia University in New Delhi. This document reveals 16 cases in which those accused of being operatives of various terrorist organizations arrested mostly by the Special Cell of Delhi Police, were acquitted by the courts, not simply for want of evidence, but because the evidence was tampered with, and the police story was found to be unreliable and incredulous.
