Written statements received by one-man-inquiry commission
Muzaffarnagar: More than 200 written statements have been received so far by the one-man-inquiry commission, constituted by the UP government to look into the recent Muzaffarnagar riots.
Retd Justice Vishnu Sahai, former judge of Allahabad High Court, yesterday visited various affected places in Shamli and Muzaffarnagar districts and inspected the damage caused. He assured justice to the victims and said guilty will be punished, according to an official release.
Sahai asked people having information about the violence to approach him at his camp office "without any fear".
He said that probe would be focused on four points -- cause of riots, action taken by the government officers at that time, measures to prevent riots in future and who were responsible for it.
The Commission would be visiting Meerut, Baghpat and Saharanpur districts today. The Commission started working yesterday.
More than 40,000 people were displaced and 62 lost their lives in the communal violence last month.
