Mathura Violence: Encroachers to be Booked Under NSA Says DGP Javed Ahmad

The members of a sect who had encroached on government land at Jawahar Bag area in Mathura and indulged in violent clashes with police will be booked under the stringent National Security Act, Uttar Pradesh DGP Javed Ahmad on Friday (June 3) said. “The leaders of the sect ‘Azad Bharat Vidhik Vaicharik Kranti Satyagrahi’ — Ram Vraksha Yadav, Chandan Gaur, Rakesh Gupta and others will be booked under the NSA Act,” he told a press conference in Mathura. A total of 24 people, including an SP and an SHO, were killed in clashes between police and members of the sect who had encroached on government land here yesterday. Tension prevailed in the area with police seizing a large cache of ammunition from the site and arresting 320 people. “Among the 24 killed, two policemen were shot dead and 11 were burnt to death due to cylinder blasts. The encroachers had set on fire the huts where bombs, explosives and gas cylinders were stored, before retreating from the site,” Ahmed said. “After the blast, few encroachers were hurt and finally succumbed to their injuries. Since people of neighbouring area were fed up with the activities of the encroachers, they were severely beaten by the residents of the area when they were retreating,” he said.
