Car trapped in Muharram procession attacked with rods, Saleem, Fahad Usman and 7 others arrested

Nine persons, Mohammad Saleem, Fahad Usman, Faizan, Mohd Irfan, Mohd Kaleem, Asad, Gulab Babu, Mohd Vakeel and Mohd Anas have been arrested by the police after scanning CCTV footage of the incident.

UP police have arrested nine persons for attacking and damaging a car trapped in a Muharram procession between Arya Kanya crossing and Bargad Gali, under the Mutthiganj police station area, Prayagraj, on Sunday night.

As per a report in Times of India, Ravi Kumar, Saurabh Gupta and Ramesh Verma were travelling in a car owned by Ravi from Ram Bhavan crossing to Transportnagar on Sunday night. When they were passing near Arya Kanya Gali, their car was stuck in a Muharram procession near Bargad Gali. As the trio tried to move their car through the procession, an argument was initiated with a group nearby.

Following the argument, a mob allegedly started attacking the car with iron rods and sticks. The locals reportedly alerted the police who intervened to get the situation under control and allowed the car to drive through the narrow lane.

The police later scanned CCTV footage in the area and arrested nine people, namely, Mohammad Saleem, Fahad Usman, Faizan, Mohd Irfan, Mohd Kaleem, Asad, Gulab Babu, Mohd Vakeel and Mohd Anas.

DIG, Prayagraj Range, KP Singh has stated that a case has been registered against the accused under sections 147,148, and 427 on the complaint by the car owner.

It is notable here that no person was reported injured in the incident. The TOI report states that there were some social media posts claiming communal angle into the crime but the police have acted against the posts and had also reportedly detained a person named Aman for trying to fuel communal tension over the incident.
