UP govt`s plea to withdraw case against BSP MP rejected
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.
