HC seeks UP govt's response on petition against demolition of house of Prayagraj violence accused
The Allahabad High Court on Tuesday sought a reply from the Uttar Pradesh government within 24 hours on a petition filed by the wife and the daughter of Javed Mohammad, the main accused in the June 10 violence here, challenging the demolition of their house.
Adjourning the hearing in the matter on Monday, the court had said, ''Let this matter be posted before another bench of which one of us (Justice Sunita Agarwal) is not a member. Put up this matter before another bench tomorrow i.e. on 28.06.2022 as fresh.'' According to the petitioners, the house does not belong to Javed Mohammad, but is owned by his wife, Parveen Fatima, who had received it as a gift from her parents even before her marriage.
A notice, with the house number listed, was not addressed to Fatima but to her husband Javed Mohammad, the activist and businessman who was arrested on June 10 on charges of instigating violent protests against derogatory remarks targeting the Prophet.
