Speaking on the sidelines of the last day of winter session, Baghel said, “It is unfortunate that there was no FIR or action taken then (in 2012). Seven years later, a report like this has come. Whoever is responsible will be punished.”

Baghel said the report would now be sent to the Law Department for examination. “Based on its findings, a committee will decide the course of action. But there is no question of any guilty person being spared…17 people lost their lives,” he said.
