minoritycaseBengaluru: The Home Ministry on Saturday withdrew the controversial circular issued by the office of the Director-General and Inspector-General of Police (DG&IGP) to heads of all districts on dropping cases registered against innocent minorities, claiming that it was a clerical error.

The circular, which had riled the BJP that said it amounted to “minority appeasement”, was recalled and the department issued a revised version instead, dropping the word “minorities” and inserted “all innocent people”.

Speaking to presspersons here on Saturday, Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy said the notice was issued only in the context of implementation of the Sachar Committee recommendations. The Cabinet subcommittee constituted for implementation of the committee recommendations had sought information from all police officials on cases registered against those from minority community.

Revoking cases against innocent people from minority community was among the several recommendations of the committee report, which the subcommittee headed by Minister for Health and Family Welfare K.R. Ramesh Kumar sought to implement.
