The SC has given 2 week time to the IG to complete the probe and security to the sole survivor, Samiuddin, who had filed the petition demanding an independent SIT probe and transfer of the investigation and trial out of the state.
Hapur police had registered a case of road rage instead of mob lynching.
The main accused Yudhisthir Singh Sisodia, who was arrested was later granted bail by the court. But during a sting operation by a news channel, the main accused said that he was given a heroic welcome after coming out of jail and had confirmed that it was a case of mob lynching. UNI
