Agra: Muslim man's house set on fire allegedly for relationship with Hindu; woman's family allege kidnap

Agra Muslim man's house attacked: Workers of Dharam Jagran Samanvay Sangh, a right-wing organisation, allegedly set fire to the house.

In a case of mobs going on rampage in Uttar Pradesh, the house of a Muslim man was set on fire in Agra.

The man was accused of kidnapping a woman belonging to the Hindu community. However, the woman reportedly claimed that she went with the man, who is a gym owner, of her own accord.


The woman reportedly left with the man on April 11. She was found two days later.
However, the man is yet to be traced. The woman's family had filed a missing person's report.


Subsequently, people affiliated with the Dharam Jagran Samanvay Sangh, a right-wing organisation, allegedly ransacked the man's house and set it on fire, on April 15.


Police claimed that 8 people had been arrested for the attack, with 6 teams deployed to search for more. Some erring police officials were also penalised.


Sudhir Kumar Singh, SSP, said, "Around 4 days ago, a young woman left with a man. They were from different communities. Police were able to locate the woman. Since courts are closed due to holiday, her statement has not been recorded. Meanwhile, some members of the Dharam Jagran Samanvay Sangh set fire to the house of the man who left with the woman. Police is at the spot. Fire has been doused. Peace is prevailing now. FIR is being registered. Soon, arrests will take place. Over lapses, Runakta chowki in-charge has been suspended, and a probe has been ordered against the station house officer. If he is found to have committed lapses, he will face strict action."
