Bowing to opposition demand, Uttar Pradesh government Tuesday ordered judicial probe into last week’s Mathura violence in which 29 people, including two police officers, were killed.
The probe will be conducted by a retired judge of Allahabad High Court and the inquiry committee has been asked to submit its report within two months.
“A judicial probe has been ordered into Mathura violence. Retired Allahabad High Court judge Imtiyaz Murtaza will conduct inquiry,” an official spokesman said here.
