After former state chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav, now Uttar Pradesh Principal Secretary (Home) AK Gupta has stirred a controversy by claiming no one died of cold at the Muzaffarnagar riots relief camps.
Commenting on the report of a high-level panel instituted by the state government, Gupta said children died of reasons other than cold.
"Children have died of pneumonia, not of cold. Nobody can die of cold. If people died of cold, nobody would have been alive in Siberia," Gupta said.
