The apex court, which is monitoring the relief and rehabilitation measures in the communal violence hit districts, was told by the state government on Wednesday's incident that "prima facie it looks only a law and order problem and not communal in nature". The bench was hearing the state government's plea seeking to transfer the petition filed by a police official in the Allahabad High Court to the Supreme Court against his suspension in the wake of communal violence in the district. It sought response from the police officer whose suspension was stayed by the High Court on October 9. Om Veer Sirohi, who was SHO of Fugana police station in Muzaffarnagar district, was suspended. He had challenged his suspension order of September 14 passed by the Principal Secretary (Home) alleging that the action was "malafide" and taken at the instance of cabinet minister Azam Khan.
