Lucknow, Mar 4 (UNI) Principal opposition Samajwadi Party today created ruckus in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly and staged a noisy walk out after the government announced that the investigation has given a clean chit to the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Etawah in the killing of a student at Saifai, the hometown of former chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav on January 9.

SP members, through an adjournment motion were demanding that the accused SSP Siyaram Saran Aditya, ASP Rampal Gautam and four constables should be lodged in the jail after a criminal case of murder was registered against them at Saifai police station on yesterday on the court's directive.

SP member Shivpal Singh Yadav said the accused SSP had murdered a student Mukesh Yadav in a cold blood and injured four others when they were appearing for their examinations at Choudhury Charna Singh College.

''The Court had to intervene for directing the state government to register case against the accused police officials but now they are not taking any action under the law'', he said.

State Parliamentary Affairs Minister Lalji Verma, in his statement, said the police investigation on the orders of the court had given a clean chit to the SSP and other policemen in the case.

''Inspector Jaswantnagar had submitted his final report in the case on March 2 while the district magistrate has accepted it yesterday,'' he said assuring the House that the investigation was done as per the court's order.

After the Minister's reply, SP deputy leader Mohammad Azam Khan said the government's statement was fishy as the court ordered investigation on March 1 and the final report of the investigation was filed on the next day and was approved by the DM.

''It was a clear cut effort to save the erring police officials who took law in their hands,'' he alleged. Later, he led the SP members to a noisy walkout.

As per the case, one student was shot dead and two others suffered serious wounds in a firing between students and police at the Chaudhary Charan Singh College in Chabra area.

Later, college peon Ram Gopal had moved an application to police and even informed Chief Minister Mayawati, Union Minister of state for Home Affairs Sriparakash Jaiswal, Inspector General of Police and DIG, but no case was registered against the accused.

Gopal had then taken shelter of Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Rakesh Nain.

Hearing the case, the CJM directed the Saifai police station to register cases against Etawah SSP Siaram Sharan Aditya, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Rampal Gautam, constables Malkhan Singh, Rajeev Dubey, Krishna Saini and Sanjeev Gautam.

On orders of the court, the accused were booked under section 302, 307, 148, 147 and 149 of the Indian Penal Code yesterday.

The CJM further directed Jaswant Nagar Kotwali in charge to investigate the case.
