Rowdies booked for Bareilly protest; call for action against cleric

Bareilly: Following Friday’s ‘jail bharo‘ protest by supporters of local cleric Tauqeer Raza over Gyanvapi mosque, two FIRs were registered on Saturday under sections of rioting against several persons identified on the complaint of victims belonging to both communities in Bareilly.

A few anti-social elements pelted stones at some of the cleric’s followers while they were returning home after the protest, one complaint said. In another complaint filed by Kapil Sharma, he said he was on a bike to the market when “50-60 unidentified persons attacked him and vandalised the two-wheeler”.

A video surfaced in which a few men could be purportedly seen throwing stones at people from minority community.

SSP Bareilly, Sushil Chandrabhan Ghule, said the accused will be identified & arrested soon.

Meanwhile, members of Vyapar Mandal (board of local traders) in Bareilly met cops on Saturday and demanded action against Raza as they claimed to have suffered a loss of Rs 15 crore due to the Friday demonstration.

Heavy force continued to be deployed in most parts of Bareilly with policemen maintaining a strict vigil. Police’s social media cell also maintained a close watch.
