In its charge sheet, the police alleged that these four accused, along with their supporters, had staged a protest and were shouting slogans outside Dikshit's residence on December 7, 2012.

The police alleged that the accused were protesting against demolition in some of the areas in Delhi despite the fact that they were told staging protest there was prohibited under section 144 of the CrPC.

It alleged that these accused had violated prohibitory orders and had staged protest on a public path.
