1992-93 Mumbai riots: SC asks Maha govt to inform about action taken against cops indicted by inquiry panel

The Supreme Court today directed Uddhav Thackeray-led government in Maharashtra to apprise it of the action taken against the police officers who were allegedly indicted by Justice Srikrishna Commission that probed the Mumbai riots of 1992-1993. The apex court was dealing with several petitions filed since 1998 seeking direction for the implementation of the recommendations of the commission.
A bench headed by Justice R F Nariman observed that despite the fact that the commission filed its report in 1998, the state governments have consistently done nothing to implement the recommendations of the commission and did not obey in letter and spirit, the orders of the apex court.  

The Bench, also comprising Justices S Ravindra Bhat and V Ramasubramanian, said considering that the court's order was not obeyed in letter and spirit, Maharashtra  Secretary (Home) has been directed to file an affidavit within a period of four weeks without any delay. The Srikrishna Commission report, submitted in April 1998, had indicted leaders of some political parties and police officers.
