BHOPAL: Nearly a week after five farmers were allegedly killed in police firing in Madhya Pradesh's Mandsaur district during a protest, a top officer of state police has confirmed to NDTV that no FIR or First Information Report has been filed against the policemen responsible.

The police has registered 46 FIRs over the farmer unrest in Mandsaur district. All of them pertain to acts of arson and violence by protesters demanding better prices for their crops and loan waiver; not a single case has been lodged against the police.

The government has instead constituted judicial inquiry, headed by a retired judge AK Jain. State Home Secretary Madhu Khare was transferred today and two officials had been suspended earlier.
