Days after the police killings that shook Uttarakhand’s Haldwani on 8 February over protests against the demolition of a Madrasa and mosque in the Banbhoolpura area, the police have begun confiscating the houses of Muslims named in the FIR.

The Haldwani Civil Court issued orders to confiscate the property of nine people, including Abdul Malik and his son Abdul Moeed, the alleged masterminds of the protest.

Malik had constructed the Madrasa and mosque and had vehemently opposed its demolition. He was named as the mastermind behind the protests in the police FIR.

Videos showed the police removing the doors as well as door frames of Abdul Malik and his son Abdul Moeed’s house.

The court has permitted the police to take action against all the accused under sections 82 and 83 of CrPC. The civil court has also issued non-bailable warrants against all nine accused.
