2013 Muzaffarnagar riots report submitted to governor

Lucknow, Sep 23 (IANS) Retired Justice Vishnu Sahay on Wednesday submitted the 2013 Muzaffarnagar communal riots investigation report to Governor Ram Naik.

Sahay, appointed by the Samajwadi Party (SP) government to look into the reasons behind the riots that left over 63 dead and rendered over 55,000 homeless, handed over a 775-page report divided into six sections, to Naik.

The one-man commission had been set up under the ‘Commission of Enquiry Act 1952’ on September 9, 2013, in the aftermath of the deadly riots in Muzaffarnagar in western Uttar Pradesh that had singed other districts as well.

While initially the tenure of the commission was six months, it was given extensions twice, something which the opposition parties had vehemently opposed and vocally questioned.

Also present during the handing over of the voluminous report were the commission’s secretary Dilip Kumar, principal secretary to the governor Juthika Patankar and legal advisor to the governor S.S. Upadhyaya.
