The Srikrishna Commission was set, up to inquire into the 1992-1993 Mumbai riots.

The Commission, headed by Justice B N Srikrishna submitted its report in 1998.

The Commission had inquired into the communal riots that followed the demolition of the Babri Masjid on December 6, 1992, and indicted several politicians and police officers.

In the two rounds of rioting that followed the demolition of the Babri Masjid in December 1992, 900 people died - 575 Muslims and 275 Hindus.

The report of the Srikrishna Commission remains unimplemented even three years after its submission.

Your Voice: Were you a witness to Mumbai riots?
The CNN-IBN SIT exposed the dirty details on the 1993 Mumbai riots.

After days of investigations and fact-finding, the CNN-IBN Special Investigation Team exposed the dirty details on the 1993 Mumbai riots.

The high-and-mighty break laws with impunity, CNN-IBN investigations blow the lids off the murky goings-on.

The investigations revealed how the custodians of law themselves turned rioters during the turmoil and how Maharashtra politicians provoked communal hatred in what looked like nothing short of a pre-planned and perfected pogrom.

Hindutva's role in riots and official complicity

"Even after it became apparent that the leaders of the Shiv Sena were active in stoking the fire of the communal riots, the police dragged their feet on the facile and exaggerated assumption that if such leaders were arrested the communal situation would further flare up, or to put it in the words of then Chief Minister, Sudhakarrao Naik, "Bombay would burn"; not that Bombay did not even burn otherwise."

Anti-minority bias in the Indian Police

"The response of police to appeals from desperate victims, particularly Muslims, was cynical and utterly indifferent. On occasions, the response was that they were unable to leave the appointed post; on others, the attitude was that one Muslim killed was one Muslim less...Police officers and men, particularly at the junior level, appeared to have an in-built bias against the Muslims which was evident in their treatment of the suspected Muslims and Muslim victims of riots. The treatment given was harsh and brutal and , on occasions, bordering on the inhuman...The bias of policemen was seen in the active connivance of police constables with the rioting Hindu mobs, on occasions, with their adopting the role of passive on-lookers on occasions, and, finally, their lack of enthusiasm in registering offences against Hindus even when the accused was clearly identified and post-haste classifying the cases in 'A' (True but not detected) summary".
