Mathura violence: Supreme Court to hear PIL tomorrow

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 10 February 2017, 1:49 IST

On 6 June, the Supreme Court agreed to hear an urgent plea seeking a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation into the 2 June Mathura violence - which claimed the lives of 29 people.

A vacation bench of justices PC Ghose and Amitava Roy listed the matter for 7 June after the plea was mentioned for urgent hearing by advocate Kamini Jaiswal.

Jaiswal said that the petitioner lawyer Ashwini Upadhyay wants an urgent hearing since evidence was being destroyed since the very start of the incident.

Twenty nine people, including an SP and an SHO, were killed in the massive clash between police and encroachers that broke out in Mathura on 2 June when police were trying to evict illegal occupants - believed to be of Azad Bharat Vidhik Vaicharik Kranti Satyagrahi - from Jawahar Bagh on Allahabad High Court orders.
