Civil rights activists on Wednesday alleged a deliberate bias against Muslims in the investigation into the violence at Kasganj in Uttar Pradesh on January 26.

The report was released by activists Sandeep Pandey, Teesta Setalvad, former IPS officer S.R. Darapuri, lawyer Shoaib Mohammad, academic Apoorvanand and others. “The independent investigation exposes the police attempt to frame the Muslims, against whom there is no evidence, and protect the Hindus, against whom there is evidence,” it said.
