The Delhi Government has appointed former Delhi HC judge Justice Sunil Gaur as 'Claims Commissioner' to investigate the damages and to award compensation relating to the riots which took place in Delhi in February.

The appointment is in terms of the directions given by SC in the 2009 case "Destruction of Public and Private Properties vs State of Andhra Pradesh (2009) 5 SCC 212.

The term of appointment is for six months, subject to further extensions.

In March, the Chief Justice of the Delhi High Court, Justice DN Patel, had recommended Justice Gaur as the Claims Commissioner.

Justice Gaur retired from service in August 2019.

He had created news shortly before his retirement when he denied anticipatory bail to former Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram by terming him the "kingpin and key conspirator" of the INX Media scam case.
