The Supreme Court today castigated the Madhya Pradesh police for not getting a video pertaining to the 2013 communal riots over rumours of cow slaughter and producing them as crucial evidence before a trial court, warning the officials of action.

“You (Deputy Superintendent of SIB) are in for a serious trouble, sir! Why have you not got the VCD examined,” asked a a bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice D Y Chandrachud, while taking strong note of the acquittal of nine of the 12 accused persons in one of the 12 rioting cases in which FIRs have been lodged.

The bench warned that it would “fix accountability” of the concerned police officers.

“Nine persons, out of 12, have been acquitted. Three have been absconding,” it said, asking why no action has been taken and was it because the accused belonged to “a political party”.

The bench then granted two weeks to activist Anurag Modi, who had filed the plea through advocate Pyoli, to peruse the judgement of a district court acquitting nine persons in a rioting case. Modi had filed the appeal against an order of the Madhya Pradesh High Court in the case.
