Cong moves HC against Phulpur FIR

delhi Updated: Nov 18, 2011 01:34 IST

Union ministers Jitin Prasada and RPN Singh along with Congress Legislative Party leader in UP assembly Pramod Tiwari and party MLC Nasib Pathan have filed a writ petition before the Allahabad HC seeking quashing of the FIR and stay on their arrest in connection with the Phulpur assault case.

A division bench will take up the petition on November 21. In their plea, the petitioners alleged that the FIR was politically motivated and lodged with ulterior motives.

They said it was a clear case of security breach and hinted that in order to cover its fault, the state government had got a fabricated FIR registered.
