A local court rejected the bail plea of three persons accused of killing two brothers during the riots last year.

District sessions judge Vijay Laxmi on Thursday rejected bail plea of Sehdev, Ajit Singh and Amardeep, accused of killing brothers Shahid and Nawab on September 9 last year, during communal riots that hit the district, said district government council Dushyant Tyagi.

The duo had gone to fetch milk for their shop at Matheri village in the district where they were attacked by the rioters, Tyagi said. Deceased’s father Akhtar Hasan had loged a complaint with police against six people. The Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing into the riots had also confirmed their involvement in the crime.
