SP leader expresses concern over supporters’ victimisation

Rampur, November 28 (KMS): Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Mohammad Azam Khan has expressed concern over the victimisation of his supporters by the district administration.

Mohammad Azam Khan talking to reporters said the district administration and local police were threatening SP workers and barging into their houses by breaking through doors and misbehaving with female members of their family.

This, he said, was being done to prevent them from casting their votes on December 5 when the by-election will be held on the Rampur Assembly seat. “The police even threatened my wife and former Rampur MP Tanzeen Fatima and used objectionable language for her,” he added.

Azam Khan said that a police team conducted a raid at the house of Mohammed Taalib, a co-accused with the SP leader in Rampur municipal corporation’s missing equipment case. The equipment was recovered from Jauhar University in September this year.

Taalib is absconding in this case and police have filed a charge sheet in the court against him.

“The doors of 50 party workers were broken, and many innocent people were picked up from the streets. They used objectionable language even for women. Such an inhuman and shameful treatment of women does not suit the administration. My wife had gone to see Taalib’s elderly mother, who is not well, when the police raided the house in search of him,” Azam alleged.
