Muzaffarnagar: A local court on Friday rejected a plea of the Uttar Pradesh government to withdraw a six-year-old criminal case against Bahujan Samaj Party MP Kadir Rana and 11 other party activists.

The Additional District Sessions Judge S K Banerji has rejected a plea filed by Assistant District Government Counsel Yashpal Singh, seeking withdrawal of the case against them.

The court ruled that withdrawal of the plea can not be allowed in public interest, as several policemen including a Deputy Superintendent of Police were injured and substantial government property was also damaged.

The case relates to an incident at Shamli town in the district in 2004 where the BSP MP and 11 others were allegedly involved in violent protests outside the district magistrate's house, shouting slogans against the arrest of then BSP candidate Shanawaz Rana, who allegedly violated code of conduct during last Lok Sabha elections.
