Shri Chandra Pasi is receiving treatment at the Unnao hospital

Shri Chandra Pasi, 28, is currently receiving treatment at the Unnao district hospital for serious burns. Additional SP Akhilesh Singh stated that the police are addressing his grievances and ensuring that Shri Chandra receives the best possible treatment.

Pasi had filed an FIR against his neighbours under the SC/ST Act and other sections related to violence, attacks, and the use of caste slurs on October 18. He named Munir, Sabir, Anees, Mumtaz, and Sabiha in his complaint.

Two individuals were omitted from the case

During the investigation conducted by circle officer of Purva, Deepak Singh, two individuals were omitted from the case as the evidence did not support their inclusion in the FIR.

He proceeded to douse himself in petrol and set himself ablaze

This decision angered the complainant, who later arrived at the SP office with a blanket wrapped around him. He proceeded to douse himself in petrol and set himself ablaze, screaming about police tampering with the evidence. On getting information, District Magistrate Apoorva Dubey and other officials also reached the hospital and met the complainant.
