A district court in Ajmer on Tuesday remanded 13 persons to the police (4) and judicial custody (9) who were arrested by the police for attacking the property of Bishop House of the United Church of Northern India Trust Association on Monday.
Police have registered a case under sections 453, 420 and 120 of IPC against these persons including BJP leaders Gopal Chaudhry, Vishnu Parsad Chokriyal and Shiv Ra Chaudhry for ransacking the Bishop House.
Bishop and President of the Diases of Rajasthan, Collin Theodore had lodged a complaint against Solomon Smith of the Indian Candian Presbyterian Mission for allegedly forging the documents to prepare the power of attorney in favour of Gopal Chaudhry to give the property on lease to him.
Chaudhry is the loyalist of BJP legislator from Kekri ,Vishnu Modi.
MLA Modi said "Gopal Chaudhry is my friend but I am not aware of his arrest by the police. I can say one thing that the police have got no powers to settle the title of a property which is confined to civil court only."
Superintendent of Police Ajmer S Sengathir said that police team would be sent shortly to arrest the main accused Solomon Smith from Indore who had leased out the Bishop House's property to Gopal Chaudhry.
Chaudhry claimed that he had got legal documents with him and he had done nothing wrong.
In his complaint, Theodore said that Solomon had leased out the property for five years to Gopal Chaudhry after preparing the forged power of attorney.
He said that several persons had attacked the property but timely intervention of the police helped in arresting 13 of them.
