Azad Maidan riot: Amar Jawan vandal gets bail

December 10, 2012 21:27 IST

A sessions court on Monday granted bail to two accused in custody for the August 11 Azad Maidan violence, including Shahbad Abdul Kadir Shaikh who allegedly damaged the Amar Jawan memorial.

The other accused granted relief on Monday was identified as Niyaz. The police had on November 9 filed a 3384-page chargesheet in a local court against 58 accused in connection with the violence in which two persons died and 92 injured when a rally at Azad Maidan in South Mumbai, being held to protest alleged atrocities against the Muslims in Assam and Myanmar, turned violent.

\Meanwhile, a metropolitan magistrate's court has extended the police custody of the rally's main organiser Maulana Ahmed Raza until December 15, his lawyer Sharif Sheikh said.

Raza, general secretary of a non-govermental organisation, Madina-tul-ilm, had been booked on the charges of murder, conspiracy, rioting, causing damage to public and private properties and unlawful assembly.
