Ahmed Javed, additional DGP (law & order), has submitted a report to the government. The report includes the failings of the police and the remedial measures to be taken. The state has also ordered a judicial inquiry into the incident.
"We have requested people with any video clips of the rioting or the police action that can throw any light on the incident to come forward and share it with us," Javed said.
Violence broke out in Dhule on January 6 after a small tiff over a payment of a hotel bill. It turned into a major riot and six people, all of them Muslims, were killed when the police opened fire on the mob. The police claimed firing was necessary since their men were being selectively targeted.
But some local residents claim the police targeted and assaulted Muslim youth during the riot which lasted over five hours.
