Court extends Monu Manesar’s judicial custody in attempt to murder case by 14 days

A Pataudi court on Wednesday extended by 14 days the judicial custody of alleged cow vigilante and Bajrang Dal activist Monu Manesar in an attempt to murder case.

The court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Tarannum Khan fixed November 22 as the next date of hearing in the case.

Due to security reasons, Manesar was presented in court via video conference. His counsel, advocate Kulbhushan Bhardwaj, said that in the next hearing too, Manesar would be produced through video conference.

According to police, the case is related to a brawl between two groups in Pataudi’s Baba Shah Mohalla on February 6 when Manesar was present with his group. A complaint was filed by Mubin Khan, a resident of the same locality, who alleged his son was shot at during firing between the two groups.

Following the complaint, an FIR was registered under section 307 (attempt to murder) against Manesar at the Pataudi police station on February 7.

Manesar was arrested in connection with the abduction and killing of Nasir and Junaid whose charred bodies were found in a vehicle on the Rajasthan-Haryana border on February 16 after they were allegedly abducted by some vigilantes who accused them of cow smuggling.
