Singh hinted that the riots were orchestrated by ruling SP in collusion with BJP.

RLD Chief and Union Minister Ajit Singh has said that his party would move the Supreme Court demanding a CBI enquiry into Muzaffarnagar riots.

A petition in this regard was pending in the Supreme Court,Singh said here on Tuesday,adding that a CBI enquiry could only be ordered by a court or by the state government.
