The plea filed by Archana Dwivedi, spouse of Superintendent Police (metropolis) Mukul Dwivedi, who was killed throughout clashes in Mathura on June 2, 2016, stated that on March 2, 2017, the Allahabad High Court directed CBI to represent two groups to finish the investigation inside two months however 40 months have handed and but the “powerful politicians and top officials of the state” haven’t been interrogated.

The Uttar Pradesh authorities had, in January 2014, granted permission to Ram Vriksha Yadav’s organisation Azad Bharat Vidhik Vaicharik to carry an indication on the floor for 2 days.

However, members of the organisation, which claims allegiance to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, went on to occupy the sprawling public park for greater than two years.

Following a excessive court docket order, the squatters had been evicted from the park amid large-scale violence.

“No punitive action has been taken against the then DM and SSP Mathura who intentionally asked petitioner’s husband to take action to vacate the park with unarmed policemen.”

“Under mysterious circumstances, he was ordered to get the boundary wall of Jawahar Bagh broken a day prior to the scheduled operation. He was accompanied by only a few newly-recruited policemen, armed with only lathis. The senior officers did not permit firearms due to which his armed gunmen, escort party, and even his service revolver was not with him. This is very suggestive of a larger criminal conspiracy,” the plea stated.

The spouse of slain officer alleged that no punitive motion or suspension has been taken in opposition to the upper authorities accountable for this gigantic violence and even after 40 months, CBI has not examined the decision particulars of  Yadav and his associates until date.

“It seems that forensic investigations, resembling DNA checks, weren’t carried out, so it’s unclear whether or not the primary accused Ram Briksh Yadav is lifeless or alive. Neither his nor his shut affiliate’s telephone name particulars had been examined.         

“There are more than two dozen cases against Ram Briksh Yadav in Mathura only and many other cases are pending in other districts throughout the State. There were more than 80 intelligence reports against the criminals but police was not permitted to take appropriate steps to vacate the park,” it stated. PTI
