CBI probe into Dadri lynching case politically motivated: UP govt tells HC

The UP government has submitted before the Allahabad high court that its investigation into Dadri lynching case has been “impartial” and that the petition filed by a Noida-based BJP leader, who is among the accused, seeking a CBI probe into the matter was “politically motivated”.

The submissions were made by the state government in its counter-affidavit filed on Wednesday on the petition by Sanjay Singh, who had alleged that investigation into the mob attack on the house of Md Akhlaq in September last over alleged beef eating rumour was not taking place in a free and fair manner. He alleging that since he was associated with the BJP, he was being “implicated” in the case at the behest of the ruling Samajwadi Party in the state.
