No letter received from Centre on Bareilly riots: UP govt

Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government tonight dismissed as "misleading and baseless" media reports that the Centre was not satisfied with its report on the Bareilly riots.

A state government spokesman said it has not received any such letter from the Union government.

Media reports suggesting that the Central government was not satisfied with the report submitted by the state government were totally "misleading and baseless", he said.

He said though unfortunate incidents occurred in Bareilly, effective action was taken and the situation was brought under total control.

Now, Bareilly was totally peaceful, he pointed out.
