Ranchi police have sought from the district court warrant of arrest against 40 persons on charges of 

arson to rioting to unlawful assembly to promoting enmity between two groups.


The case of communal violence dates back to June 10,2022.After carrying out investigations, the allegations against the accused were validated by the evidences including videos and CCTV footages. 


Each of these 40 accused were sent three notices to report to the police, but in vain. They remained beyond the reach of the police, according to documents accessed by JharkhandStateNews.com.


As a result, the police have now moved the court seeking issuance of warrant of arrest against these 40 accused who have been pressed various charges and booked by name in as many as 25 FIRs registered so far into the June 10 violence. 


The police had to use force, including firing, to quell the protesters. Two people had died of bullet injuries while seven are under treatment. The protest was organised against the derogatory comments against the Prophet by the now-suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma.


Police said that majority of the FIRs were registered at Hindpiri and Daily Market Police stations in the city.


All 40 accused named by the police belong to the minority Muslim community.They include

Md. Bilal,40, Md. Arif Khan alias Rinku,40,Md. Shakeel alias Karu,38,Md. Munna alias Md. Mojhid, 42 and Md.Shadab.
