Warrant against Natwar’s son
A city court on Monday issued non-bailable warrants (NBWs) against former Union Minister Natwar Singh’s son, Jagat Singh, for not appearing in two separate cases of rioting during public demonstrations during 2000 and 2001.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate AK Kuhar issued NBWs for May 27 against Singh and three other accused, Jamaluddin, Pradeep Jaildar and Joginder Mallik.
Earlier, a warrant was issued against Singh and others on November 16 in the two cases. But the accused did not appear before the court, forcing it to issue NBWs.
Another accused, Randeep Singh Surjewala, who is now a minister in Haryana, was exempted after his counsel moved an application before the court.
The accused persons were booked for holding a Youth Congress protest at Jantar Mantar in July 2000 and March 2001 even after proclamation of prohibitory orders under Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code.
