Lucknow: Despite warnings by the National Women Commission, the Uttar Pradesh government is not willing to bring the culprits of the Bhatta-Parsaul agitation to book.

Terming the NCW’s pressure baseless, the state government said how FIR can be registered when the deliberations regarding the incident are going on.

In its letter, the NCW asked the UP Principal Secretary to register cases against the culprits.

When no action was taken, NCW president Mamata Sharma issued a warning on Wednesday saying the commission will move the court if the case was not registered against the culprits.

However, the state government seems to be unwilling to take any action in this regard.

According to the state government’s spokesperson, the pressure is being created without any concrete reason.

“Media had telecasted the Bhatta-Prasaul incidents live where officials were also present. Magisterial investigations are underway in this connection. How can one point out the culprit and who committed the crime,” said the spokesperson.

The spokesperson added that respected leaders of political parties have also visited the sites. Earlier, NCW and Human Rights Commission had also visited the place but no case was reported then.
