Court issues notice to Haryana government in Mirchpur case
New Delhi: A Delhi court on Thursday issued a
notice to Haryana government to appoint a special public
prosecutor to represent the state in the trial relating to
mayhem against Dalits allegedly by upper caste Hindus in Hisar
district in April this year.
The case relating to the killing of a 70-year-old Dalit
man and his physically-challenged daughter allegedly by 102
persons was transferred to a special court here designated
under the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989, by an
order of the apex court on December nine.
The court passed its order after Special Additional Public
Prosecutor P K Verma, who has been duly notified by Delhi
government, submitted that he had no instructions from Haryana
government to represent it in the case.
Additional Sessions Judge Kamini Lau directed that the
copy of the order of the Supreme Court be placed before the
Chief Secretary, Haryana government, so that a special public
prosecutor was duly notified to represent the state before the
court on January four, the next date of hearing.
