Once again rejecting the demand for CBI probe into the Mathura violence in which 29 people, including two police officials, were killed, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, on Tuesday again accused the BJP of “unnecessarily” creating “hype” over the issue. “BJP is left without any issue. Therefore it is creating hype over Kairana (migration) and Mathura (violence) unnecessarily. There will be no CBI inquiry into Mathura incident,” he said in Jaunpur.
BJP has been demanding CBI probe into the violence in Mathura on June 2 when police tried to evict activists of an organisation from Jawahar Bagh that they had illegally occupied.
