Referring to last year’s Hapur mob attack case, on Monday the Supreme Court asked the Uttar Pradesh government to file a new status report. The state government was asked by a bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna to submit its status report related to the investigation.
The Inspector General of Police of Meerut range was given the responsibility to supervise the investigation in the case by the top court on September 5. The court was told by the state government that it has transferred the SHO concerned and at the same time, it had appealed to cancel the bail of the accused in the case, in which one man died.
The mob attack happened in Uttar Pradesh’s Hapur, around 70 km from Delhi on June 18, 2018. A video caught on cellphone went viral on social media showing a 45-year-old meat trader, Qasim Qureishi, being thrashed. The crowd assaulted another man, 65-year-old Samiuddin for allegedly killing a cow. Qasim died after the incident.
The top court directed a senior police officer of Uttar Pradesh last year to investigate the case and termed the allegations of survivor Samiuddin as “serious”. The plea filed by Samiuddin stated, “setting up a Special Investigation Team (SIT) comprising of police officers with impeccable career records of integrity and competence from outside the state of Uttar Pradesh, which shall be charged with the responsibilities and duties of investigation, in respect of all issues relating to the matters concerning and arising from the incident”.
At the same time, it sought a direction that SIT “shall report to and be responsible to this court through the filing of periodic status reports and shall also keep this court informed of any major developments”.
