According to a report from ANI, there has been an escalation in security measures outside the Nuh District Court, where Mamman Khan is slated to appear today for legal proceedings.

As reported by Press Trust of India (PTI), the legislator representing Ferozepur Jhirka, who had been identified as one of the accused in a First Information Report (FIR) filed after the communal clashes, was taken into custody late last night. Satish Kumar, the Deputy Superintendent of Police for Ferozepur Jhirka and the leader of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) tasked with investigating the case, has verified the arrest. When asked if the legislator had been arrested, he affirmed, “Yes.”

Senior Congress MLA from Nuh, Aftab Ahmed, also confirmed Khan’s arrest, stating, “The police have given information to us that he has been arrested.” Ahmed serves as the Deputy Leader of the Congress Legislature Party in the Haryana Assembly.

In the aftermath of the Nuh violence, Khan had been identified as a suspect in an FIR, as disclosed by the Haryana government in a statement presented to the High Court the previous Thursday. The government additionally asserted that they possessed phone call records and other corroborative evidence supporting the allegations against him.

Haryana’s Additional Advocate General, Deepak Sabharwal, clarified that Khan’s inclusion as an accused was officially made on September 4, following a thorough examination of the available evidence. Sabharwal stressed to reporters that there was substantial and compelling evidence linking Khan to the case.

The Nuh violence unfolded on July 31 when a procession led by the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) was attacked by unruly mobs, resulting in six fatalities, with most occurring during the procession assault. Additionally, a cleric lost his life in a separate attack on a mosque in the neighboring Gurugram area.

Justice Vikas Bahl is scheduled to preside over the case on October 19 for further proceedings.
