The SIT will be headed by Additional Chief Secretary Sanjay Bhoosreddy. In a detailed press release, the state government said that the probe will cover many aspects in the case such as — “whether the authorities took proper actions in FIRs filed against Dubey, whether those actions were enough to punish him and his accomplices?
