29 people, including Mathura SP Mukul Dwivedi and SHO Santosh Kumar Yadav were killed in the clash between the police and encroachers that broke out in the city on June 2 when police tried to evict illegal occupants, believed to be of Azad Bharat Vidhik Vaicharik Kranti Satyagrahi, from Jawahar Bagh on Allahabad High Court orders.
Upadhyay in his plea said the court may also take suo motu cognizance of the matter and direct the CBI enquiry, as "it is necessary to find out the truth, root cause of the incident and nexus among executive, legislature and the said group".
He also sought a direction to the state and Centre for framing of a uniform policy for compensation for families of the deceased in such cases.
Referring to the extent of the loss of lives and damages, the plea said, "the police recovered 47 guns, 6 rifles and 179 hand grenades from the camp. By June 3, they had arrested 368 people, 120 of whom were charged with creating disturbances.
"This included 196 preventive arrests, including those of 116 women. CBI inquiry is necessary to find out the root cause of the Mathura incident and nexus among the Executive, Legislatures and the extremist group...".
The plea also claimed the union government was ready for a CBI inquiry into the incident but Uttar Pradesh government was developing cold feet in recommending CBI probe.
