Saharanpur violence: Sikh delegation demands judicial probe

A Sikh delegation, led by Delhi BJP President Satish Upadhyay, today met Union Minister Jitendra Singh and demanded a judicial probe in recent violent clash between two groups in Uttar Pradesh's Saharanpur. 

The delegation handed over a memorandum to Singh, Minister of State for Prime Minister's Office. 

It is important that the central government take up the matter and examine possibilities of making the Government of Uttar Pradesh to order a judicial probe by a sitting High Court judge into the riots at Saharanpur on July 26, said the memorandum. 

Jitendra Singh gave them a patient hearing and assured them that Government stands for communal harmony and disapproves of the violence against any community.
