Aligarh/ New Delhi: The families of  Mustaqim (22) and Naushad (17)  – two youths who were picked up by police on Sep 16th   and later killed on Sep 20th in an allegedly  fake encounter  – are  living under complete  house arrest. Police in plain clothes are present at their one-room rented accommodation during whole day and they  put lock on the door at night before leaving them, told   Hasan Khalid , a journalist associated with Urdu daily to Muslim Mirror.

Relatives and neighbors of deceased’s family are being harassed when they try to visit the house of victim family. Plain-clothed policemen outside the house are threatening them whenever they try to approach the ‘house arrested’ families of  Mustaqim and  Naushad. When some activists or media persons come to meet them, policemen ask for their identity cards and at the same time other police personnel  inform  Bajrang Dal goons who come and hackle them, he added.

Last week United Against Hate (UAH ) team  were heckled and intimidated by members of Hindutva outfit Bajrang Dal at Atrauli village’s police station when they tried to meet victim families.

“Within five minutes such an environment created that if we had stayed there for a few minutes more, we would have been lynched.” remembers Nadim Khan of UAH while recounting the visit.

When activist Maria Alam from Aligarh went to meet them,  she was also hackled and  intimated by  Bajrang  Dal goons  in front of Pravesh Rana, the  station house officer (SHO)  in Atrauli Police station.

Moreover another youth Nafis who was also picked up by police along with along with  Mustaqim (22) and Naushad  on 16th Sep is still  in languishing in  lockup in Atrauli police station  from last 21 days.

It should be noted that Furquan , father of Mustaqeem  has been reportedly missing since the day they all were picked up on September 16. He has not come back home ever since and there is no information about his whereabouts.
