SC refuses to interfere in UP land row

The apex court Monday declined to hear a petition seeking a CBI probe into alleged police atrocities on farmers of Bhatta-Parsaul village in Uttar Pradesh during protests against land acquisition earlier this month.



New Delhi: The Supreme Court Monday declined to hear a petition seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into alleged police atrocities on farmers of Bhatta-Parsaul village in Uttar Pradesh during protests against land acquisition earlier this month.

The apex court bench of Justice G.S. Singhvi and Justice C.K. Prasad told the petitioners that they should approach the Allahabad High Court as it was already hearing the matter.

"It is appropriate that once the high court has taken cognizance of the matter and issues notice, this matter too should be heard by them," Justice Singhvi said.
