Monday June 3, 2013 10:50 PM, IANS

Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit met Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde over the possibility of withdrawing the FIR against those booked for allegedly resorting to a violent protest at Karbala burial ground in January 2012.

"We met Shinde over the Karbala issue today (Monday). The FIR (First Information Report) filed against people who indulged in violence was discussed," Dikshit told IANS.

In January 2012, a violent clash had erupted between police and locals who allegedly tried to pull down a gate leading to Karbala, the Shiite burial ground in B.K. Dutt Colony in south Delhi's Jor Bagh area. Seventeen security personnel and 50 locals were injured in the clash.

"Lieutenant Governor Tejinder Khanna and the chief secretary have been directed to look into the matter," Dikshit told IANS.
