ROHTAK: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar today said incidents of arson in Rohtak, which had occurred on a large scale during the Jat agitation for reservation, could not have taken place without a "political conspiracy".

"It is not possible without a political conspiracy and this act of demonic mentality should be condemned," said Khattar who visited the city to see the properties set on fire during the agitation in February.

He visited the house of Finance Minister Abhimanyu and Sindhu Bhawan, where he went to educationist Chaudhary Mitrsen's room which was also set on fire. He also met Mitrsen's son Veer Sen Sindhu and wife, Parmeshwari Devi.

Later, Khattar told reporters, "The economic loss can be recovered but people have been badly hurt and their flourishing businesses have been reduced to ashes."

He said after seeing the house of the Finance Minister, one can say that it was not possible without a political conspiracy.

"The incidents of arson are part of a conspiracy. The lives of the members of the family were in danger," he said.

Asked who could be behind the violence, Khattar said the Judicial Commission would look into it and the guilty would not be spared.
