Lucknow : The state government has ordered a CB-CID probe into the
deaths of two Dalit sisters whose charred bodies were found in their
Moradabad home last month.

The government's decision was announced by Cabinet Secretary Shashank
Shekhar Singh at a press conference here today. Earlier, the National
Commission for Scheduled Castes had summoned the DIG and the DM of
Moradabad on January 10 and ordered them to re-investigate the case.

According to a release issued by the state government, criminals
looted the house of one Gagneja on December 9, 2010. Gagneja and his
daughter Sania were killed in the incident.

The police named Rajesh Balmiki and Rakesh Balimki as the accused.
They were arrested later, the release said. Local residents held
demonstrations, two hours after which smoke was seen coming out from a
house. The charred bodies of the two sisters were found inside.

Rajo Devi, their mother, lodged an FIR against Pankaj Gangneja and
other nine persons, the release said.
