The Supreme Court on Wednesday put the Akhilesh Yadav government in the dock for the Muzaffarnagar communal riots and turned down a plea for a CBI or court-monitored probe "at this juncture" into the violence that left nearly 60 persons dead and more than 40,000 homeless.
"We prima facie hold state government responsible for negligence in preventing communal violence in Muzaffarnagar and adjoining areas," the SC said.
The SC said the state had failed to protect the serious violation of fundamental rights of the people saying it was duty-bound to protect and uphold the people's rights.
