Noting that a ‘victim’ has unbridled participatory rights from the stage of investigation till the culmination of the proceedings in an appeal or revision, Supreme Court said that the ‘victims’ were denied “a fair and effective hearing” in the high court. It said that the high court deserved to be set aside as it cannot be sustained.

After the incident, driver and two BJP members were also killed by the angry farmers. A media person had also lost his life during the incident. A total of eitght people were killed in the incident.
