Following violent anti-CAA protests in Uttar Pradesh's Firozabad, police have sent out notices to 200 people as a precautionary measure. The list of people who got the notices includes a 94-year-old man, who had died six years ago. It also includes the name of a 93-year-old man, who is bedridden.
Khan's son Mohammad Sarfaraz confirmed the incident and said the police should have conducted a proper inquiry. "I also have my father's death certificate," Sarfaraz added.
According to a report, a 93-year-old social worker Fasahat Mir Khan, too, received a similar notice. “He is a social worker and had the honor to meet former president APJ Abdul Kalam at the Rashtrapati Bhawan. I do not understand why he got such a notice,” his son told.
"There was a lot of pressure on us to maintain peace and these were interim measures taken based on reports from various police stations," Firozabad City Magistrate Kunwar Pankaj Singh quoted. "No action will get taken against any elderly people," he added.
