Currently, the court has not ruled on the UP government’s application
Let me tell you that public prosecutor Rajiv Sharma has applied to the ADJ Court in Muzaffarnagar to withdraw the case. The court has not yet ruled on the case. It may be known that the FIR was registered on September 7, 2013 after the Mahapanchayat of Nangla Mandaud. An FIR was registered against the three leaders for provocative speeches, violation of Section 144, arson and vandalism. The mahapanchayat was convened in Muzaffarnagar after the assassination of Sachin and Gaurav.
U.P. The cases registered against the BJP people in the spirit of “political malice” should be withdrawn as well as the cases of all the opposition parties. This demand of BSP.

This is the whole case
By the way, 510 cases were filed in Muzaffarnagar riots, out of which this case is very important. These are the same cases in which BJP MLA Sangeet Som, Kapil Dev Agarwal and Cabinet Minister Suresh Rana are the other accused. The lawsuit is also important because after the Jat Mahapanchayat at Nagla Mandir in September 2013, riots broke out in western UP, including Muzaffarnagar, killing 65 people and leaving more than 40,000 homeless. . Many of these people still live in camps.
What does it mean to withdraw a lawsuit?
According to experts, the case has been technically withdrawn from the government. Indeed, in all such cases the state government fights the accused. The case was also filed against the BJP MLAs by the then police station Charan Singh Yadav on behalf of the state government. Now, on behalf of the public prosecutor, the application to withdraw the case in court means that the government has withdrawn the case. The court will now have to decide on the merits of the case or not.
