The magisterial probe ordered by the government into the DJ Halli and KG Halli riots will start from September 2. The riots had occurred on the night of August 11.
A team led by Bengaluru Urban Deputy Commissioner Shivamurthy visited the DJ Halli and KG Halli police stations and collected preliminary information on Thursday. “A full-time investigation of the case will begin from September 2,” he said.
Speaking to the media, Shivamurthy said, “The government has given a three -month deadline for the magistrate’s report. A magisterial inquiry is similar to a judicial inquiry. The National Human Rights Commission’s (NHRC) guidelines will be followed while conducting the investigation.”
