Kamal & Adil tied saffron cloth on their head; ransacked Jalal Shah Mazar, burnt chadars
On Saturday evening the Uttar Pradesh Police foiled the plot of spreading communal unrest amid the ongoing Kanwar Yatra. The police arrested Kamal & Adil who tried to hatch a communal conspiracy near the ‘Jalal Shah Mazar’ in Bijnor.
Both the conspirators are brothers who tried to ransack Jalal Shah Mazar & burning ‘chadar’.
ADG (Law and Order) Prashant Kumar said, “A big communal conspiracy was prevented under Sherkot PS limits; info was received about 2 people ransacking Jalal Shah Mazar & burning several ‘chadar’. Police reached the spot & got to know that a similar incident happened at Bhure Shah Mazar.”
Kumar added, “Police arrested 2 brothers in this regard, namely Kamal & Adil. They tied a saffron-coloured cloth on their heads & conducted the incident. No damage was done to religious texts. The same incident happened at Qutub Shah Mazar in Sherkot at 11:30 am, which went unnoticed.”
He further said, “This whole matter shows attempts to soil the atmosphere amid the Kanwar Yatra. Field officers instructed to be more alert; continuous social media monitoring also underway.”
Police officials said that special officers have already been deployed on Kanwar Yatra routes and helicopters for aerial vigilance. The police officials said that Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had issued directions to ensure the safety and security of all pilgrims during this auspicious ‘Sawan’ month and all possible facilities had been provided for them.
