UP govt tells SC that court can appoint a retd judge (SC had suggested ex-Punjab and Haryana HC Judges - Justices Ranjit Singh/Rakesh K Jain) to supervise SIT probe into Oct 3 Lakhimpur Kheri incidents - mowing down of 4 farmers, lynching of 3 accused and murder of a journalist.

SC says it needs one more day's time. "We are considering former Punjab and Haryana HC Judge Rakesh Kumar Jain or others. We have to consult them," a bench headed by CJI said. SC said it would pass orders on Wednesday.

UP govt counsel Harish Salve said let the names be not exclusively from outside the Allahabad HC as the SC is appointing a person and not looking into the HC where he was a judge.
