More than 200 individuals formed a mob that trashed a mosque in a Gurugram hamlet, assaulted those who were worshipping inside, and threatened to drive them out of the community.
Although the event in the village of Bhora Kalan on Wednesday night resulted in the filing of a police report, no arrests were made public until Thursday night.
There are just four Muslim families’ homes in the entire village of Bhora Kalan, claims a complaint made by Subedar Najar Mohammad.
According to him, the disturbance started on Wednesday morning when a group of 200 people, allegedly led by Rajesh Chauhan alias Babu, Anil Bhadoria, and Sanjay Vyas, encircled the mosque and went inside to pray before threatening to drive the namazis out of the community.
“The crowd came and attacked the namazis and even shut the prayer hall when we were inside the mosque praying in the middle of the night. Moreover, they threatened to murder us “According to police, the Subedar made these claims in his report.
The accused had already left when police arrived.
Officials reported that a mobile phone found by police at the scene may have belonged to a member of the mob that was assaulting.
Following Mohammad’s complaint, a FIR was filed at the Bilaspur Police Station accusing Rajesh Chauhan, Anil Bhadoria, Sanjay Vyas, and numerous others of rioting, attempting to provoke religious conflict, and illegal assembly.
“An FIR has been filed in accordance with the complaint, and we are checking the details. The law would be followed in taking action “Gajender Singh, a senior police official and the investigative officer, remarked
