MUZAFFARNAGAR: The Special Investigation Team (SIT), probing the Muzaffarnagar riots, has moved a local court seeking issuance of an arrest warrant against a Delhi Police constable, accused in an arson and loot case here.

During investigation, Delhi Police constable Anuj Kumar was allegedly found involved in the riots case at Bahawdi village under Phugana police station in the district, SIT officials said.

SIT inspector Ramraten Singh moved an application before Chief Judicial Magistrate Narender Kumar on Tuesday, seeking issuance of an arrest warrant against the absconding accused.

The SIT has asked the local police to arrest the accused constable, who was allegedly found involved in an arson and loot incident here during communal riots in September last.

The communal violence, which had broken out in Muzaffarnagar and adjoining towns, had claimed over 40 lives and rendered above 50,000 people homeless.
