The Uttar Pradesh Government today suspended the Meerut DIG and removed the District Magistrate for being "lax" in tackling communal tension and arsoning in the district.
"Deputy Inspector General of Police JN Singh and District Magistrate Subhash Chandra Sharma have been prima facie found lax in responding to the incident," Cabinet Secretary Shashank Shekhar Singh told reporters here.
He said while the DIG has been suspended, the DM has been removed from his post.
A communal clash broke out in Meerut on Sunday following an attack on a religious leader in which several people were injured.
Trouble erupted after local religious leader Ikrar Ahmed was allegedly beaten up by some youths in Kajipur village after which an agitated mob went on the rampage setting commercial establishments and buses on fire.
More than 2,000 people have been booked by the police, out of which 21 have been arrested in connection with the incident.
Meanwhile, the District Magistrate of Meerut Subhash Chandra Sharma has announced that those who have sustained losses due to the riots, would be given "adequate help" from the state government.
"Strict action would be taken against those who took law in their hands on Sunday. Evaluation of the losses that traders and others suffered due to the riots, will be done and
will be recommended for compensation. The persons, whose properties were damaged in the riots, except those who have their properties insured, would be recommended for a financial aid from the Chief Minister," he said.
Two youths, allegedly involved in beating up the Imam, were handed over to the police by the village panchayats today.
