Irfan Solanki, SP MLA, issued arrest warrant in rioting case in UP

In a rioting and arson case, a local court issued a non-bailable warrant (NBW) against Samajwadi Party MLA Irfan Solanki and his younger brother.

According to Joint Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Anand Prakash Tiwari, NBWs were issued against Solanki and his brother Rizwan on Wednesday following the registration of a case at the Jajmau police station.

The joint CP stated that the search is on for Seesamau MLA and his brother, who fled underground to evade arrest.
Tiwari said several police teams had been formed to conduct raids at all possible hideouts of the MLA and his brother. He added that intelligence indicated they may have taken refuge in the neighbouring districts or the state capital.

According to another official, if the MLA and his brother do not surrender to the court or the police, further action will be taken to attach their properties.

An individual with whom Solanki had a land dispute with had accused him and Rizwan of burning her house down on November 7.

Nazir Fatima, a resident of Defence Colony Jajmau in the city, filed a complaint alleging that the SP leader and his aides destroyed her home while she and her family were en route to a marriage ceremony.

In her letter, Fatima claimed to own a plot measuring 535 square yards in the posh Defence Colony, where she has lived since 1986. According to her complaint, the MLA and his brother seized approximately 200 square yards of her land.

Abhishek Shukla, the Station House Officer of Jajmau police station, has been suspended following allegations that he failed to take action against the SP MLA and refused to listen to the woman’s complaint.

There are several charges against MLA Solanki and his brother under the Indian Penal Code, including sections 147 (rioting), 327 (voluntarily causing harm to extort property), 427 (mischief causing damage), 386 (extortion by placing a person in fear of death or grave injury), 436 (mischief by fire or explosive substance intended to destroy a house), 504 (intentional insult), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 120B (criminal conspiracy).
