Uttarakhand forms SIT to probe ‘hate speech’ | India News – Times of India

DEHRADUN: A Special Investigation Team (SIT) was constituted by Uttarakhand Police on Sunday to investigate alleged hate speeches delivered at the Dharam Sansad, a religious conclave organised at Haridwar in December.
DIG Garhwal Karan Singh Nagnyal said that the SIT is headed by Dehradun SP (rural) Kamlesh Upadhyay and has one circle officer, one inspector and two sub-inspectors as its members. “The decision to form the SIT was taken since the issue is sensitive and there was a demand for independent investigation in it,” he said.
The move to form the SIT comes a day after members of the Muslim community took out marches in Dehradun and Haridwar, demanding an SIT probe into the case, a suspension order for a cop found sharing a laugh with accused seers and arrest of organisers and participants of the meet.
