An Uttar Pradesh court today dropped sedition charges against all the 38 accused in the Bulandshahr mob violence, which had resulted into the death of a senior officer and a civilian late last year. The court also pulled up the state police for filing a chargesheet under 124-A of the CrPC -- which relates to sedition -- without the home department's approval. Instead, the accused have been charged under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, including murder, attempted murder, criminal conspiracy, rioting and arson. Bulandshahr Superintendent of Police Atul Srivastava told NDTV that the police now plans to file a supplementary chargesheet that includes charges under 124-A after taking the home department's permission.
