Religious leader followers attack, 12 injured

Mathura: Over a dozen people, including Tehsil staff, advocates and litigants, were injured after they were allegedly attacked by the “followers” of a religious leader here.

A case has been registered on the complaint by President of Tehsil Advocate’s Forum Forum, police said.

The splinter group of leader’s followers have been occupying government land for the last two years.

“A case is pending in High Court and was listed for today, but it could not be taken up,” president of Tehsil Advocate’s Forum Hukam Singh said adding the matter would be taken up by the Bar Association Mathura tomorrow.

Two days ago, Javahar Bagh Mukti Andolan committee led by a RLD leader had claimed that they would get the land vacated today.

However, the committee was persuaded to defer the action, a senior district official said.

“They deferred their action for a fortnight,” City Magistrate Vijai Kumar said, adding that the district administration had sought a month’stime to get the land vacated.
