Unnao: Police says CCTV footage reveals that Hindu boys mentioned in FIR weren’t even present at the spot

The police have also said the complaint of raising slogans hasn't been verified yet.

The Unnao police released a press note today regarding the alleged thrashing of madarsa students over a game of cricket. The madarsa students had alleged they were forced to chant Jai Shri Ram and when they refused, they were beaten up.

On examining the CCTV footage it was found that the names mentioned in the FIR weren’t present at the spot. The madarsa students had an argument with one of the 4 people in the other group which led to a clash.

The police have also said the complaint of raising slogans hasn’t been verified yet. One has been arrested so far. Further investigation is to be done.

The UP police had earlier stated that the preliminary reports had revealed students weren’t beaten over chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’. A fight had broken out between two groups of children over a game of cricket. They have said that there was no religious angle to the incident.

The children studying at Darul Uloom Madarsa were playing cricket at GIC cricket ground on June 11. It was alleged that some men had reached the ground and got into a fight with the Madarsa kids. Four children have been injured. An FIR was subsequently registered.

After the news of the incident spread, a Jama Masjid Imam had warned of communal violence. He said that ‘unprecedented action’ would be taken if the men who allegedly beat up the Madarsa children were not arrested by Friday namaz.

Recently in various cities, there have been incidents of violence after Friday prayers by Muslim mobs protesting against “mob lynchings” and alleged incidents of Muslims being forced to chant “Jai Shri Ram”, though many of such claims have been found to be either false or unverified.
