2010 Bareilly Riot ‘Mastermind’ Maulana Tauqeer Raza Gets Some Relief From Allahabad High Court

Prayagraj, March 20 (TNA) The Allahabad High Court has refused to intervene on the summons and non-bailable warrant issued under Section 319 of CrPC against Maulana Tauqeer Raza, an accused in the 2010 Bareilly riots, but gave some relief and said that he will surrender in Bareilly court by March 27 and get bail. If the application is given then it should be decided as per rules and till then the warrant should not be executed, the court further stated.

Considering the issues raised in the petition as worthy of consideration, the High Court has sought a reply from the state government within two weeks and has directed to present the petition for hearing after four weeks. However, Allahabad High Court has removed some observations of the lower court order from the order.

Justice Ram Manohar Narayan Mishra has given this order while hearing the revision petition of Maulana Tauqeer Raza. In the application, the summons and non-bailable warrant issued by the court under section 319 of CrPC have been challenged. Maulana Tauqeer Raza, the chief of Ittehad-e-Millat Council, is accused of instigating the 2010 riots in Bareilly. Bareilly court considered Maulana Tauqeer Raza as an accused in this case and issued summons under section 319 of CrPC.

When Maulana did not appear on the summons, the court issued a warrant for his arrest. Non-bailable warrant has been issued against him twice for not appearing in the court. The court has also ordered Bareilly Police to arrest Maulana Tauqeer Raza and produce him. The summons order has been challenged in the petition.
