UP ready for CBI probe in Dadri case, if HC orders
After dithering for months on the issue of recommending a CBI probe into the Dadri lynching case, the UP government said if the Allahabad high court found an inquiry by the agency relevant, it would honour and implement the order.
“If the court finds anything incomplete in the investigation, then the government will take immediate cognizance and an impartial inquiry will be conducted,” an official spokesman said in a statement here.
“Even after that, if the court finds the CBI investigation relevant, then the government will completely honour and implement it,” he said.
The High Court had in February sought a reply from the Centre and the UP government on a petition filed by a BJP worker from Noida who alleged that he was being “implicated” in the Dadri case, which took place over beef eating rumour, and demanded that the probe in the matter be handed over to the CBI.
