New Delhi: A local court in Uttar Pradesh has accepted the Yogi Adityanath-led government’s request to withdraw cases against 51 people including Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders Suresh Rana, Sangeet Som and Umesh Malik and VHP leader Sadhvi Prachi, in connection with the 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots.

Judge of the special court, Ram Sudh Singh on Friday allowed the government counsel to withdraw the case.

The state counsel had moved an application in the court stating that the Uttar Pradesh government has decided in public interest not to proceed further with the prosecution of the BJP leaders and that the court should allow its plea to withdraw this case.

It is alleged that the accused participated in a mahapanchayat and incited violence through their speeches in the last week of August 2013.
