MP Government’s response to the petition of a young man named Asif whose house was demolished\
Bhopal (MP) – A Muslim youth named Asif, a resident of Shahpura in the Dindori District of MP, has filed a petition in the High Court challenging the crime registered against him. In the petition, he accused the Government of demolishing his house on the charge of kidnapping a Hindu girl. The Government has replied to the petition, stating that the house was demolished not due to the abduction of the Hindu girl, but due to encroachment.
Shahpura Police had registered a case of kidnapping against Asif on 5th April 2022. In this case, the family of the Hindu girl had complained to the police alleging that ‘Asif forcibly took the Hindu girl from a bus. Accordingly, a criminal case was registered against him. Asif had filed a petition in the High Court seeking protection. He alleged that the Government demolished his father’s house and brother’s shop.

The MP High Court had sent a notice to the State Government in this regard. The Government stated that his father’s house was not demolished due to the complaint filed against him. Official notices were sent to the youth’s father regarding the encroachment. The youth’s father had also appeared before the committee on 30th March. The committee had ordered the demolition on 6th April after finding encroachment. That is, the action was taken against the encroachment before the complaint was lodged against the youth. (If so, the public feels that action should be taken against the petitioner for wasting Court’s time by filing a false petition – Editor)
