  • Uttar Pradesh Investors Summit 2018 Narendra Modi lauds Yogi Adityanath govt for rolling out red carpet for investors

The Allahabad High Court on Thursday, February rejected a petition seeking an inquiry by the CBI into the Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Aditynath's alleged role in Gorakhpur riots which occurred in 2007. "No cost has been imposed", a bench of Justice Krishna Murari and Justice Akhilesh Chandra Sharma cited the reason for dismissal. Therefore, the writ petition has hereby dismissed. "We will file an appeal in the Supreme Court against this order", said Farman Naqvi, counselor for the petitioners.

In January 2007, a young Hindu boy, Raj Kumar Agrahari, was hospitalised following clashes between a group of Hindus and Muslims during a Muharram procession in Gorakhpur. Adityanath, who was the then Gorakhpur MP, was arrested for disrupting peace and violating prohibitory orders and was remanded to police custody for 11 days. The petitioners highlighted "the imminent bias arising in the legal process by virtue of the changed circumstances of the prime accused becoming the CM of the state overseeing the investigation of the case".
