The Delhi High Court Wednesday allowed BJP leader Subramanian Swamy's plea to make public the report of CB-CID, Uttar Pradesh police, in the 1987 massacre of Muslims at Hashimpura locality in Meerut, in which it sentenced 16 former police personnel to life imprisonment.

A bench of Justices S Muralidhar and Vinod Goel, however, declined Swamy's plea for a further probe by a SIT into the massacre.

The high court in its judgment noted that in the over three decades since the massacre, no significant developments are stated to have taken place, or on other leads have been unearthed that warrant the direction for further SIT probe.

The plea for further SIT probe was sought by Swamy in his appeal challenging the acquittal of the 16 former PAC personnel by the trial court.
