Court Issues Non-Bailable Warrant Against IMC Chief for Evading Summons

A local court has issued a non-bailable warrant against Maulana Tauqeer Raza Khan, the chief of Ittehad-e-Millat Council (IMC), for failing to comply with court directives. The warrant, issued by the court of ADJ (Fast Track) Ravi Kumar Diwakar, orders the City CO (I) to execute the warrant, arrest Khan, and present him in court by March 13.

Previously, the court had summoned Maulana Tauqeer Raza Khan on Monday, alleging his involvement in orchestrating the 2010 Bareilly riots. However, despite multiple attempts, the police have been unable to locate him.

According to police reports, Maulana Tauqeer Raza’s residence has been locked for several days, with no sign of his family members. Additionally, his mobile phone either remains switched off or goes unanswered. Neighbors claim that Maulana Tauqeer Raza has been residing in Delhi for an extended period.

The 2010 Bareilly riots erupted during the Juloos-e-Mohammadi procession in Bareilly, resulting in violence between two communities. Rioters set fire to approximately 20 shops in the vegetable market near the Qutubkhana Bazar intersection. Authorities issued orders to close all schools and colleges in the city, and helicopter surveillance was conducted in the affected areas.

In the aftermath of the riots, communal harmony was severely threatened throughout the region, leading to the imposition of curfews for several days. The court has identified IMC President Maulana Tauqeer Raza as the primary instigator behind the riots.
