New Delhi: The Supreme Court today dismissed the Maharashtra government's plea against the Bombay High Court's order directing a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the death of six people in police firing during the 1992 Mumbai riots.

The apex court directed the CBI to continue with its investigation. The CBI under instructions of the Mumbai High Court has been investigating the Hari Masjid incident of the 92-93 riots.

A bench comprising justices P Sathasivam and AR Dave upheld the Bombay high court order entrusting CBI with the probe of the incident.

The apex court directed the CBI to complete the investigation within six months.

Victim Farooq Mohammed Qasim Mapkar and others had sought an independent probe into the alleged police firing on people offering prayers at Hari Masjid.

The incident had occurred during the riots that followed after the Babri Masjid demolition.


Earlier, the Central Bureau of Investigations (CBI) investigating into the Hari Masjid Firing case in September 2009 stopped the probe after it learnt from the Special Task Force (STF) that the Supreme Court has ordered a stay.


The Special Task Force was set up in 2000 by then home minister Chhagan Bhujbal to act on the Srikrishna Commission Report into the 1992-93 Mumbai riots. It was headed by K P Raghuvanshi, former ATS chief, and comprised handpicked policemen from all over the state. 


Though the Congress-led state government claims, it has taken action on the recommendations made by Justice Srikrishna, Civil Rights groups working for 1992-93 Mumbai riots do not agree.
