The bench led by CJI NV Ramana, Justice Surya Kant and Justice Hima Kohli heard the Suo Moto case and asked the state government to produce a status report which should contain the details of the accused and mention if they have been arrested.

The bench also told the Uttar Pradesh government to ensure that the mother of the deceased Lovepreet Singh receive medical, who was informed to be critical due to mental shock of losing her son in the violent incident.

The apex court on Wednesday took suo motu cognisance of the violence that took place in the Lakhimpur Kheri district of Uttar Pradesh.
