Uttar Pradesh: Yogi Adityanath govt to continue to shame rioters, will move SC against Allahabad High Court order

Earlier, the Uttar Pradesh government had put up hoardings of 57 anti-CAA rioters in prominent intersections in state capital Lucknow.

Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh government has vowed to move the Supreme Court against the Allahabad High Court order in its bid to continue “profiling” the rioters. This move comes a day after the Allahabad High Court ordered the Lucknow administration to remove hoardings that “name” and “shame” Anti-CAA rioters.

The media advisor, Mrityunjay Kumar, to the UP Chief Minister tweeted, “The order of the Allahabad High Court to remove hoardings that identify rioters needs to be understood in the right context.”

Kumar added, “Only the posters will be removed but not the Indian Penal Code sections against them. The fight to expose the identity of the rioters will continue. Lenient treatment will not be meted out to rioters under the Yogi Adityanath led government.” As pre reports, the petition challenging the High Court Order is to be filed later in this week.

Another media advisor to CM Yogi Adityanath, Shalabh Mani Tripathi, reiterated that the government is examining the Allahabad High Court order on what basis was it passed. “Our experts are examining it. The government will decide what option to go for. The Chief Minister has to take the decision… But it is a fact that none of the people, who damaged public properties, will be spared,” Tripathi said.

Earlier, the Uttar Pradesh government had put up hoardings of 57 anti-CAA rioters in prominent intersections in state capital Lucknow. The hoardings included their names, addresses and photos of the rioters who damaged public property during the riots that claimed 22 lives in December last year. The rioters were asked to pay the penalty amount within a month.

The Allahabad High Court, which took suo motu cognisance of the issue, on March 7 termed the move as “highly unjust” on Sunday. The Bench comprising of Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Ramesh Sinha noted that that there is no law that allows the state to place banners displaying names and personal data of the accused from whom compensation is being charged.

Labelling the hoardings as ‘unwarranted interference in the privacy of people’, the Allahabad High Court has ordered the district administration and the divisional commissioner of police to remove them by March 16.
