Muzaffarngar: The Special Investigation Team (SIT) has filed two chargesheets against the three accused in the recent riots in the district, an official said.

The chargesheet was filed yesterday in the court of CJM KP Singh here.

The three accused Ikbal Singh, Rupender and Mohkam Singh have been chargesheeted in two separate cases, SIT Inspector, Ram Ratan Singh said.

The chargesheet against 13 more accused has not yet filed because they have been absconding, Singh said.

Police has started attachment proceedings against them, he added.

More than 60 persons were killed and over 40,000 displaced in communal violence that had broken out in Muzaffarnagar and adjoining areas in September this year.
