Police to attach properties of absconding accused, court to issue `kurki’

Jamshedpur, June 26 : The police are gearing up to attach their properties as the accused in the post-lynching violence in Mango continues to abscond.

According to information, all legal formalities for getting the attachment executed against the accused have almost been completed and it will be done just after a court date following Eid.

Deputy superintendent of police (headquarters-I) KN Mishra said there are 78 accused in the case related to committing violence in reaction to the lynching of four persons at Shobhapur in Rajnagar block of adjoining Seraikela-Kharsawan district on May 20.

“The probe is still on. We have arrested 21 persons so far, but the remaining 57 accused are still absconding. We had started the process of attachment against 21 accused and the attachment process is in its final state,” said Mishra.
The DSP (headquarters-I) said the court will issue the `kurki’ order after holding one date after the Eid. He said they could initiate process of attachment against the remaining 36 accused as their names and whereabouts are to be verified.

It may be mentioned four youths, Sheikh Naim (35) resident of Phulpal, Sheikh Sajju (25), Sheikh Siraj (26) and Sheikh Halim (28), all residents of Haldipokhar, were lynched at Rajnagar while they were going to buy cattle from Haldiopokhar to Rajnagar on May 18.

Notably, after four cattle traders were lynched in Rajnagar in adjoining Seraikela-Kharsawan district, the members of Muslim EktaManch had given a call for Mango bandh as a mark of protest. The bandh supporters had resorted to a large-scale violence on the street after forcing the shops and business establishments to remain closed on May 20.

The incident was triggered when members of a newly formed social outfit (Muslim EktaManch), who had given a call to close down shops in minority areas, to condole lynching of four youths (all from minority communities) at a village in Rajnagar block in neighbouring Seraikela-Kharsawan district started enforcing closure of shops in Purulia Road passing through minority dominated pockets.

Those wanted in the case of Mango violence were accused of attacking on the police and also the Mango thana in the morning of May 20 when over 500 protestors had gathered belligerently on Old Purulia Road in Mango.

In the case of Nagadih lynching under Bagberathana on May 18, so far 13 persons have been taken into custody. OC, Bagberathana Ram Yash Prasad said of the 13, four accused were arrested and nine others, including the Mukhiya of Nagadih, RajaramHansda, surrendered before the court last week.
