NEW DELHI, April 10 (PTI) - Taking into account the findings of a magisterial inquiry, the National Human Rights Commission has closed a case of police firing in which four persons were killed during a protest in Assam's Barpeta district last year.

The incident took place on August 21, 2010, when protestors under the banner of District Minority Students Union gathered in front of Barpeta deputy commissioner's office demanding cancellation of work of pilot project of updating the National Register of Citizens.

Four persons were killed in police firing on protestors following which activists Radhakanta Tripathy, R H Bansal and others filed complaints alleging lack of restraint by police in controlling the agitators and demanding the cancellation of the pilot project.

Considering the matter recently, the Commission took into account a magisterial inquiry report which said the students union leaders, who organised the agitational programme, "could not control the mob".
