February 15, 2024: The Haldwani Civil Court on Thursday issued orders to confiscate the property of nine miscreants, including Abdul Malik and his son, the alleged mastermind of the violence that broke out in Banbhoolpura town of Haldwani area in Uttarakhand following the demolition of an allegedly "illegal structure" as part of an anti-encroachment drive on February 8.



As per sources, the court has permitted the police to take action against all the accused under sections 82, and 83 of CrPC.



Earlier on Tuesday, the civil court issued non-bailable warrants against all nine accused. The latest development came days after the Municipal Corporation issued a recovery notice of Rs 2.44 crore against Abdul Malik, a key accused in the violence at Haldwani, asking him to deposit the money to cover damage caused to government property during the clash.
