The committee formed for this purpose has promptly submitted its report to the Uttar Pradesh government. Subsequently, the state government took swift action by suspending six individuals, including a Sub-Divisional Officer (SDO) and a Circle Officer, who were allegedly involved or negligent in their responsibilities.

The Hathras stampede occurred recently, resulting in multiple casualties and injuries during a religious gathering. The Supreme Court’s intervention underscores the gravity of the incident and aims to ensure a transparent and impartial investigation into the tragic event.
