Nuh Violence: Cong MLA Mamman Khan's remand extended by 2 days

Monday, 18 September 2023 | PNS | Gurugram/Chandigarh

Congress MLA from Firozpur Jhirka Mamman Khan — an accused of instigating Nuh violence — was again produced before the court on Sunday which extended his remand to the Special Investigation Team (SIT) by two more days. The court also sent Khan to judicial custody in three other cases.

 

Due to Khan's appearance in the court, security arrangements in the district were beefed up. More than 200 policemen have been deployed on the road leading to the court. The court has extended the accused MLA’s remand to the SIT by two more days.

 

After his arrest on Friday, the MLA was remanded to police custody for two days.

 

Sources said that the Nuh Police had registered four FIRs against the accused MLA, in which he was sent to jail in FIRs number 148, 149, and 150 while in FIR number 137 the court sent him to a two-day remand.

 

After his arrest, the police claimed that Khan was one of key conspirators of communal attack on Yatra in Nagina area. They have taken his phone and laptop in custody and are reviewing his social media accounts for any evidence related to his alleged meeting with co-accused arrested in the cases. However, Khan's lawyers and supporters said that he was being falsely involved in the cases.

 

According to sources, SIT interrogated him during remand. During this, the investigation team asked many questions to the accused MLA. During interrogation, Maman Khan was seen avoiding the questions of the SIT.  The police told the court that the accused was not cooperating, hiding facts and his phone was formatted. SIT will also record the statements of the security personnel engaged in the security of the MLA.

 

Khan was arrested on Friday in connection with the communal violence that took place in Nuh district on July 31. The violence left six people dead, including two home guards, and a cleric and injured at least 88 others.

 

Congress Demands Judicial Inquiry

The Opposition Congress on Sunday termed the arrest of its MLA Mamman Khan in connection with the Nuh violence a “witch hunt” and demanded a judicial inquiry under the supervision of a sitting judge of the High Court. “Judicial inquiry will bring out the truth and everything will be revealed to the public, which will be acceptable to all. The people of the state know that Congress MLA Maman Khan has been arrested due to political hatred, hence it is necessary for the truth to come out,” state Congress president Uday Bhan said.
