Bulldozer culture thrives while law SLEEPS: Kapil Sibal

New Delhi: 

Former Union Law Minister Kapil Sibal on Monday slammed the Uttar Pradesh government for bulldozing the properties of those accused of being involved in the violent protest against suspended Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Nupur Sharma in Prayagraj. 

Sibal’s remarks came a day later the authorities demolished the resident of Javed Pump, one of the prime accused in Prayagraj violence that had erupted on June 10 after Friday prayers. 

Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Sibal wrote on Twitter, “Prayagraj: The culture of bulldozing thrives while the law SLEEPS. Desh badal raha hai (the nation is changing).”

Mohammad Javed alias Javed Pump was identified as the main conspirator behind the violence. 

Following which, the Prayagraj Development Authority (PDA) issued a demolition notice at his residence, asking him to vacate the house by 11 am today as it is “illegally constructed”.

Names of people linked with All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) have surfaced, said Prayagraj Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Ajay Kumar, adding that there could be more masterminds.

“Mastermind Javed Ahmed detained, there could be more masterminds…The anti-social elements used minor kids to hurl stones at the police and administration. A case registered under 29 crucial sections. Action will be taken under Gangster Act and the NSA,” he told reporters here.

Protests erupted in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand and West Bengal over the controversial remarks on Prophet Muhammad made by suspended Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Nupur Sharma and expelled leader Naveen Jindal.
