According to official sources, the district authorities would send their report on 13 points regarding the cases after two days to the state government's law department. The District Magistrate has sought a report from SSP and prosecution officer.

After getting the report, the DM would sent his report to the government. The Uttar Pradesh government is considering withdrawing case against Muslim leaders for allegedly inciting violence through inflammatory speeches on August 30, last year, in a Muslim Panchayat at Khala Par here, including against BSP MP Kadir Rana during Muzaffarnagar riots.

The Law department of the government had asked the district authorities to send a report. Meanwhile, the prosecution department has said in its report that there is no case pending in court in connection with the alleged inflammatory speeches.

He said charge sheet has not been filed in court. The case is being probed by special investigation team (SIT) here. At this stage, there is no question of withdrawing the case from court, he said. He said the government may directly take a decision to withdraw the case and there is no need for court's permission.
