DADRI (UP), Oct 6 : Trouble appears to be brewing for Union Minister Mahesh Sharma and rabble-rouser BJP MLA Sangeet Som with UP Police seeking action against them for alleged violation of prohibitory orders in Bishada village where a 50-year-old Muslim was killed on rumours of his family eating and storing beef last week.
A report filed by the police with the District Magistrate of Gautam Budh Nagar district recommended filing of FIRs against the two leaders and also against BSP leader and former Minister Naseemuddin Siddiqui. Superintendent of Police (Rural) Sanjay Kumar Yadav said the report has been filed against the three leaders who addressed the villagers in defiance of prohibitory orders in force in the area.
The leaders were given permission only to meet the family of the victim and not for addressing public meetings in view of the sensitive situation prevailing in the area.
Som, MLA from Muzaffar Nagar, is already in the news as he had on Sunday said they were capable of giving a "befitting reply" if "innocents were framed" in the lynching case. ?PTI
