India impose curfew in Bareilly city

All accused in connection with rioting and violence in Uttar Pradesh’s Kanpur were on Sunday sent to a 14-day judicial remand. Meanwhile, the Bareilly administration today imposed a curfew under Section 144 ahead of a huge protest planned to be held on June 10 by Muslim cleric Tauqir Raza.

“Four accused- Hayat Jaffar Hashmi, Javed Ahmed Khan, Mohammad Rahil, and Mohammad Suffian are associated with Maulana Ali Jauhar Fans Association. We will further ask the court to send them on a 14-day remand,” Kanpur CP Vijay Singh Meena had said before the hearing in the court.

According to the administration, no more than five people may congregate in a public place. During this time, protests would also be prohibited. The curfew has been imposed until July 3 to avoid a repeat of the incident that occurred in Kanpur on Friday, according to news agency ANI said.

Kanpur Police Commissioner V S Meena said the accused will be booked under the stringent National Security Act and the Gangster Act while the possible role of groups like the Popular Front of India (PFI) and others is being looked into.

Properties of those involved in the violence will be seized or demolished, said Additional Director General (Law and Order) Prashant Kumar. “We have identified 36 people who were involved in the violence with help of CCTV footage and other video recordings of the incidents. A total of 24 people have been arrested so far of which 18 were held on Friday,” the Kanpur police commissioner said.
