Muzaffarnagar: A BSP MLA and his brother
on Monday failed to appear before a court in connection with a
rape case, despite repeated issuance of warrants against them.
BSP MLA Mohd Alim and his brother Yunus, who was to
appear before the court of Additional Chief Judicial
Magistrate Vikas Goel, did not turn up.
The judge gave Bulandshahr SSP one-month time to produce
the duo before the court.
According to the prosecution, on June 5, 2003, police
had freed 48 Nepali girls from a circus and charged its owners
Alim and Yunus of illegal confinement of the girls.
Some of the girls had also accused the duo of sexual
assault and medical examination of two of them had confirmed
Alim was elected as an MLA from Bulandshahar constituency
in the recent UP Assembly elections.
