New Delhi: The CBI on Tuesday filed its first chargesheet against two persons in connection with the alleged arson at a private school and a Hindi newspaper office in Rohtak during the Jat quota agitation in February last year. These properties reportedly belonged to trusts linked to Haryana minister Captain Abhimanyu.

Sources said the chargesheet was filed against two persons — Virender singh and Mohit Sindhu (both residents of Rohtak). The agency filed its probe report before a local court in Panchkula, Haryana. At least 30 people were killed and properties worth crores of rupees were destroyed in Haryana during the violent quota agitation by Jats in February, 2016. The agency has registered several cases pertaining to violence. The protesters were seeking reservation in government jobs and educational institutes for the Jat community under the category of Other Backward Classes. There were allegations that some people gathered around the school in Rohtak on the evening of February 19, 2016. These people threatened the guard and ransacked the school. On February 20, a mob armed with oil cannisters and rods gathered around the school. They allegedly ransacked the property and put the building, school buses and other vehicles on fire.
