The Uttar Pradesh police, who raided the house of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Uttar Pradesh president Munkad Ali in Shahjahanpur on Thursday night after learning that his brother Sajid Ali was involved in an incident of firing, found him missing from the residence.
Circle officer of Kithore area, Alok Singh, said that a villager, Yaseen, had sustained bullet injuries in the firing incident and was undergoing treatment. According to a report by Hindustan Times, Yaseen’s condition is stated to be stable by doctors.
“Initially, Yaseen’s family had lodged a case against unidentified criminals. However, later, a video surfaced in which he was seen accusing Sajid Ali of opening fire on him. Yaseen said he had gone fishing in the pond near Sajid Ali’s resort in Shahjahanpur on Monday evening when he was prevented from doing so and was shot at,” said Alok Singh.
The Circle officer confirmed that Sahid’ name was added on the basis of that video and furthered: “He is absconding and a recommendation has been made to the SSP of Meerut to declare a cash reward on him. We are also seeking a warrant in his name from the court.”
Recently, police had also conducted a raid at another BSP leader and former minister Haji Yakoob’s Meerut house in connection with a case of land grabbing and attempt to murder registered against him and his son Imran Qureshi.
The complaint was lodged by Muzammil, a resident of Hajipur naming Haji Yakoob and his son Imran Qureshi for grabbing his ancestral land in 2005 by making fake documents. He won the case from the court and went for taking possession from Yakoob and his son who allegedly attacked him and forced him to go away from there in spite of the court orders. Muzzamil then approached Kharkhauda police and registered a case of grabbing land and attempt to murder against the duo.
