Uttar Pradesh Governor TV Rajeshwar has sought a report from the state government on the May 28 communal violence in Aligarh in which three persons, including a BJP leader, were killed and 12 seriously injured, an official spokesman said on Friday.
The Governor has also sought details of the steps undertaken by the district administration after the April 6 communal violence in the communally-sensitive town in which seven persons were killed.
Meanwhile, the state government has deputed the special task force to trace the killers of the BJP leader and others besides pursuing the entire matter leading to frequent communal violence in the city.
The Governor also asked Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav to ensure that the Gandhi 'Samadhi' at Rampur is not disturbed in the name of renovation work as apprehended by the Congress, the spokesman said.
Former Congress MP from Rampur Begum Noor Bano had given a memorandum to him on May 31 demanding stopping of the ongoing repair work at the Gandhi memorial allegedly without the permission of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI).
She alleged that SP workers, on the directives of Urban Development Minister Mohammad Azam Khan, were trying to destroy the Samadhi where Gandhi's ashes were buried and requested the Governor to ensure that the renovation is carried out after a no objection certificate from ASI.
