Finally, Nimesh Commission Report tabled in Uttar Pradesh Assembly
Tuesday September 17, 2013 11:35 AM, & Agencies

After a delay of more than a year, Samajwadi Party (SP) government in Uttar Pradesh finally tabled the RD Nimesh Commission Report in the state Assembly on Monday, the first day of the ongoing session.

The single-member Judicial Commission, headed by former district and session judge RD Nimesh, in its report has raised doubts over the arrest of Tariq Quasmi and Khalid Mujahid, and their involvement in the terror cases.

Both Khalid and Tariq were accused in serial blasts which occurred in Gorakhpur, Faizabad and Lucknow in 2007.

Demands for tabling of the report were made from various circles since more than a year. However, the SP government which had inculded it into its election manifesto, did not budge. Meanwhile, Khalid Mujahid, died in police custody in a suspicous manner.

After Khalid Mujahid's deaths, Rihai Manch - a local outfit, sat for a dharna in front of the state assembly with a demand to table the report in the assebly, and release of the acused fasely implicated in terror cases.

Although the report was not officially released, the leaked report was available online. Chairman of the Rihai Manch, Mohamamd Shoaib had said that it had already released the Nimesh Commission report in March, and so mere report is not sufficient and they expect from the government to also tell the public what actions they have taken on the report.

The report said Tariq was taken in custody by the police from his house in Azamgarh on December 12, 2007 and Khalid, now dead, from Jaunpur on December 16, 2007 was shown arrested only after people protested against his 'illegal' detention and demonstration by the National Loktrantrik Party.
