TEHRAN (IQNA) – A local court in Sangrur, a town in the Indian state of Punjab, on Thursday adjourned the Malerkotla Quran sacrilege case to October 11 to decide on the charges.


On the last date of hearing, the police had opposed the Aam Aadmi Party’s Delhi legislator Naresh Yadav’s application for a probe into the bank accounts of Vijay Kumar, the main accused in the sacrilege case.

Yadav’s counsel Narpal Singh Dhaliwal said the court would decide on the charges on the next date of hearing.

Earlier, the Sangrur police wrote to the court that challan has been produced and the case is at the “framing of charges” stage.

“At the charges stage, the accused has no right to submit any document or file application for more documents. We appeal the court that this application be cancelled and charges framed against the accused,” police told the court. However, the court of Additional Sessions Judge Dinesh Kumar fixed October 11 as the next date.

Vijay Kumar, the main accused in the burning of Quran in Malerkotla on June 24, 2016 had claimed that he did it at the behest of “his friend” Yadav. Later, Vijay made a u-turn before the media alleging that the police forced him to name Yadav in the case. Both Yadav and Vijay are out on bail.
