Meanwhile, police informed the court that murder charges have been slapped against Uppal and two others arrested in the case.

Pawan, Sunder and Farman were arrested Feb 3 and booked under the Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act for passing racist remarks against Tania.

The three were also presented before the court and sent to judicial custody after police arrested them on murder charge in the case.

The 19-year-old Tania was beaten up by shopkeepers in south Delhi's Lajpat Nagar area Jan 29 following a quarrel over his appearance and clothing. He died in a hospital the next day.

Police told court that according to post-mortem examination report Tania died due to "serious" internal head injuries.

The Delhi High Court was informed Monday that Tania received serious injuries on his head, lungs and face.

"There were nine internal injuries and the nature of external injuries were simple. The injuries in the head led to death. There was no poisoning found in the body," police told the court, reading out from the post-mortem examination report.

The special court hearing the bail plea of Pawan and Sundar, adjourned it for Feb 14 after defence counsel sought time for preparing his argument.

Defence counsel Shalabh Gupta told the special court, exclusively dealing with cases under the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, that police have slapped murder charges against the accused, so he needs more time to prepare.
