Retired Punjab and Haryana High Court judge Rakesh Kumar Jain will investigate the violence in Lakhimpur Kheri district of Uttar Pradesh. The Supreme Court on Wednesday appointed former judge Jain to oversee the SIT investigation. Along with this, the court has reconstituted the Uttar Pradesh SIT probing the case and has included three senior IPS officers SB Shirdkar, Padmaja Chauhan and Dr. Preetdar Singh. These three officers are IPS of Uttar Pradesh cadre, but are not natives of the state. After this, it is believed that the investigation of the Lakhimpur violence case will speed up and the culprits will be punished.

This order has been issued by a division bench of Chief Justice NV Raman, Justice Surya Kant and Justice Hima Kohli. The bench said that the investigation of the SIT would continue under the supervision of the former High Court judge. After filing the chargesheet and status report on behalf of the former judge, the matter will be heard again in the Supreme Court. The Uttar Pradesh government had told the court on the last hearing that it can appoint a retired judge for proper monitoring.

Court made distance from officers of UP origin

During the hearing, the bench said that it is inclined to appoint a retired judge who does not have roots in Uttar Pradesh to supervise the investigation and hence it is appointing retired judge of Punjab and Haryana High Court Rakesh Kumar Jain. The Supreme Court, while reconstituting the SIT, said that the SIT consists of medium level officers posted in Lakhimpur Kheri. The court said that this raises some doubts about the autonomy and impartiality of the investigation, despite their seriousness and commitment to the investigation. Therefore he wants to appoint such officers who are not residents of Uttar Pradesh. SB Shirdkar, a 1993 batch IPS officer, has been made the head of the SIT.

State government will give facilities and allowances to former judge

At the same time, the court said that the SIT will be free to take the help of anyone in the investigation and will try to finish the investigation as soon as possible. The court has ordered the state government to give all facilities and allowances etc. to the former judge supervising the case.
