The Bajrang Dal goon, who had paraded and beat up a Muslim man in Muzaffarnagar in June last year will soon be out because of the ‘urgent’ intervention by the Centre’s BJP government.
The district administration had slapped National Security Act against the Bajrang Dal leader, Vivek Premi, for his extraordinary act of violence. Since then Premi has been in jail.
But the central government has now decided to revoke the NSA instructing the state administration to ‘urgently’ consider releasing him from the jail.
Indian Expressed quoted the excerpts from the Home Ministry’s order,“After careful consideration of the representation, the Central government is pleased to revoke under section 14 (1) of the National Security Act, 1980. The detenu may be released forthwith from the jail unless he is required to be kept in jail for any other case. He may be tried in the cases registered under the normal law of the land and a watch may be kept on his activities.”
The order has been marked as ‘urgent.’
In June, jantakareporter.com had exclusively reported the barbaric acts of Premi publicly parading and thrashing the Muslim man through the markets of Shamli in Muzaffarnagar. His acts had earned him and his organisation global condemnation.
The Shamli district administration had invoked NSA against Premi in July and it was approved by the state government in the same month.
The UP Advisory Board, which takes the final call on confirmation or removal of NSA, had given its approval in August.
Premi then approached the MHA, now controlled by the BJP (which belongs to the same ideological family as that of Bajrang Dal) requesting that his detention under NSA be revoked.
As expected, the MHA has wasted no time in obliging the request of Bajrang Dal goon.
Shamli District Magistrate O P Verma said, “The MHA sent a radiogram revoking the NSA against Premi. I issued direction to jail authorities two days ago for his release.”
