Over 7,000 special FIRs pertaining to the cases of alleged persecution taken place during the previous Samajwadi Party regime had been registered at various police stations in the state between June 22 and July 22, senior police official said on Monday.

The FIRs were registered at the special counters set up at the police stations across the state, Uttar Pradesh police chief Vikram Singh told reporters in Lucknow on Monday.

As many as 688 FIRs were rejected after investigations and chargesheet had been filed in 1236 cases, Vikram said, adding over 4500 FIRs were still in the stage of investigation.

Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati had announced that the people who were victimised during the previous SP regime and whose FIRs were not lodged by the police under pressure, could lodge their complaints with the police at special counters at police stations.
