The family members of City SP Mukul Dwivedi, killed during the clashes between police and encroachers in Mathura, today demanded that a CBI probe be ordered into the incident. Without naming anybody, Archana Dwivedi, wife of the City SP, said her husband was made a “scapegoat” and demanded CBI probe into the incident.
“When there were para military forces, who are trained to deal with this kind of violence, stationed in Mathura then why senior district police officials sent newly-recruited policemen to a guerilla war,” she asked.
Archana said, “It was like playing with their lives” and alleged that other police personnel escaped from the spot leaving her husband behind.
She demanded a probe by CBI into the incident.
Seconding her demand, Praful Dwivedi, younger brother of the SP, said, “Truth will not come out if any state-level agency probes the incident, country’s largest and independent investigation agency like CBI should be handed over the matter.”
