The Commission did not spare district-based senior police and administrative officials either and indicted them for lapses that allowed the clashes to spread.
As per the daily, the panel’s findings were submitted in the form of a report to state Governor Ram Naik on Wednesday. The report will now be forwarded to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav for further action.
“The Commission has handed over the first copy of the report. It will be sent to the state government for necessary action soon,” Naik said, as per the newspaper. Apart from Sahai, secretary to the inquiry commission, Dilip Kumar, was also present at the Raj Bhawan when the report was submitted.
Riots had engulfed Muzaffarnagar as well as five other west UP districts in September 2013.
The SP government had later set up the Sahai Commission to probe the violence.
