Lucknow: The National Commission for Scheduled Caste today said it will serve a notice to the Uttar Pradesh government on a complaint that the probe into the murder case of a dalit doctor here was being "politicised".

"We have taken a note of a complaint alleging irregularities and politicisation of the probe of dalit health officer Vinod Arya's murder. The complainant claimed some persons have been falsely implicated in the case and real culprits are at large," NCSC Chairman PL Punia said over phone.

A team comprising NCSC officials would be formed to probe the matter, he said.

It has come to the notice of the Commission that those named in the case were not involved in Arya's murder and contrary to rules, the matter is being probed by junior officials instead of DSP rank officers, Punia said.

Arya, posted as chief medical officer (family welfare), was shot dead at Vikas Nagar area on October 27 last year.

On December 12, police arrested Vijay Dubey and Ajay Mishra, allegedly involved in Arya's murder.

"The conspiracy to kill Arya was hatched by mafia don Abhay Singh, who is currently lodged in Banda district jail," the then ADG Brij Lal had said.

The Samajwadi Party, with which Abhay is associated, had submitted a memorandum to Governor B L Joshi alleging that he was being framed in the case.

Besides, a joint delegation of Faizabad unit of Congress, RLD and SP had also submitted a joint memorandum to the Governor on the same issue.
