Seeks action against officials responsible for demolitions

HYDERABAD: The Government will take action against officials responsible for demolition of three places of worship on Saturday near Rudraram village in Medak district after due enquiry.

The assurance was given by the Chief Minister, Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, to a delegation led by the Majlis president, Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi, which called on him here on Sunday. The Chief Minister also said that a meeting in this regard would be held on April 24, it was said.

The Majlis delegation comprised Asaduddin Owaisi, MP, Akbaruddin Owaisi, Mumtaz Ahmed Khan, Syed Ahmed Pasha Qadri, Afsar Khan and Moazam Khan, MLAs, Maulana Raheem Quraishi, president, Tamire Millat, Maulana Hameeduddin Aquil Husami and representatives of Jamate Islami.

The Majlis leaders demanded immediate suspension of the Joint Collector, Medak, and a direction to the Wakf Board to take up construction of the demolished structures. They threatened to call bandh if no action was taken.

The structures were governed by the Central Wakf Act and could not be demolished or relocated.

Sangareddy: The Andhra Pradesh Police Officers' Association, Medak unit, in a press release on Sunday asked Majlis leaders to apologise to the district Collector, Anil Kumar Singhal, and other officers for their "behaviour" on Saturday at Muttangi.

The association alleged that the leaders used unparliamentary language against senior officers.

Cases booked

Meanwhile, the Patancheru police booked cases against Majlis leaders on the charge of obstructing officials from discharging their duties.

According to the Patancheru police, cases were booked under Sections 353, 341, 147 and 186 of the IPC for allegedly obstructing the district Collector and revenue officials from discharging their duties and also for causing inconvenience to public.

The cases were registered following a complaint lodged by the Patancheru MRO.

The State unit of Bharatiya Janata Minority Morcha condemned the demolitions.
