Shamli / Muzaffarnagar / Luckonw: Rihai Manch, while releasing to media the intercepted conversations of a rioter on his mobile phone. This rioter was involved in the anti-Muslim communal violence of which Katuba-Katubi village was among the worst victims. RM demanded a CBI enquiry into the communal riots in Muzaffarnagar, Shamli and Baghpat. The Manch said in its statement that it has got proofs which prove that the mass murder of Muslims had taken place under a planned conspiracy and that attempts are being made by the administrative staff now to conceal and destroy proofs in order to protect the rioters. The Manch said that it will soon place these facts at a suitable platform. In this statement, members of RM’s investigation team (Asad Hayat Advocate, general secretary of Awami Council for Democracy and Peace, Shahnawaz Alam, Rajiv Yadav and Ghufran Siddiqi) said that the administrative staff of the state government itself was complicit in this conspiracy, hence there is no use or justification of the inquiry being made or ordered by the state government.

Members of Rihai Manch’s investigative team demanded an inquiry by the CBI on the basis of intercepted conversation on the mobile phone of a rioter who was involved in the riot and violence in Kutba-Kutbi village where eight Muslims were brutally killed.
