Mathura violence: Akhilesh Yadav orders judicial probe

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today ordered a judicial probe into the Jawaharbagh violence that took place in Mathura. Action was taken after facing criticism for the ham-fisted handling of an anti-encroachment drive in Mathura by civil and police officials.

As per the information given by official spokesman, one-man commission headed by the Allahabad High Court’s retired Justice Mirza Imtiaz Murtaza has been set up following the decision.

The current investigation by the Aligarh District Commissioner into the Mathura violence has been discarded after the order of judicial probe.
