Now, bulldozers at work in UP's Prayagraj; house of local politician Javed Mohammed razed

Reports say the demolition came just hours after a notice was put up outside his residence claiming illegal construction on the ground and first floor of the property

For the second day in a row, bulldozers have been put to work in Uttar Pradesh. After demolitions were undertaken in Saharanpur and Kanpur on Saturday, authorities were busy razing houses on Sunday in Prayagraj.

The bulldozers, accompanied by a large number of police personnel, reportedly demolished the home of a politician accused of leading the violence on Friday.

The bulldozers brought down house of Javed Mohammed, a Prayagraj-based politician, the alleged mastermind behind Friday's violence.

Reports say the demolition came just hours after a notice was put up outside his residence claiming illegal construction on the ground and first floor of the property. Javed had been asked to raze the illegal construction by June 9, failing which another notice was sent to vacate the house by 11 am on June 12.

UP saw widespread protests in light of the comments made by the now suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma about the Prophet.
