Twelve people, including 6 retired judges of the Supreme Court and High Court on Tuesday wrote to the Chief Justice NV Ramana demanding to take suo motu cognizance on the Uttar Pradesh government’s bulldozer action and illegal arrests of Muslim protesters across cities in UP.

In the letter, they also demanded to intervene in the wake of incidents of violence and repression by the state authorities on citizens. Calling it a mockery of law, the letter accused the Uttar Pradesh administration’s tactics of bulldozing properties of the protesters.

Besides former Supreme Court judges B Sudarshan Reddy, V Gopala Gowda and AK Ganguly, the letter, signed by three former High Court judges and six lawyers, has urged the top court to stop the deteriorating law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh.

The coordinated manner in which the police and development authorities have acted have clearified that the demolitions is a form of collective extra-judicial punishment, the letter said. It also said that UP Chief Minister’s statements sanctioning action that sets an example further emboldened the police to torture protestors.
