Chandigarh, Oct. 23 (ANI): Asserting that individual incidents shouldn’t be given castiest colour, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Friday said that his government has referred the recent Ballabgarh incident to the CBI and added that the law and order situation in the state is fine.
“We have referred the case to the CBI. And I don’t think that at present we can do anything more than this,” he said while addressing the media here.
