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

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.
