In Adityanath’s UP, poison mixed in water at madrasa run by Hamid Ansari’s wife

In an appalling incident, unknown miscreants have allegedly mixed rat poison in the water supply of Madrassa Chacha Nehru in Aligarh. The Madrasa that houses 4,000 children located in the heart of the city is run by Al Noor Charitable Society headed by former Vice President Hamid Ansari’s wife Salma Ansari.

A FIR has been lodged against two unidentified persons under IPC sections 328 (causing hurt by means of poison) and 506 (criminal intimidation) and a lookout notice has also been issued.

According to reports, one of the miscreants was spotted mixing the poison by one of the students who alerted the staff.

Salma Ansari called the incident “shocking” and asked the madrassa warden to file a police complaint. “Following the incident, we have decided to install CCTV cameras in the 18-year-old charitable institution which has 4000 students on its rolls,” she was quoted saying.

Police have sealed the water cooler and water samples will be sent to Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) for testing, Senior Superintendent of Police, Aligarh, Rajesh Pandey said.

According to Madrassa warden Junaid Siddiqui, a madrasa student, Afzal studying in Class 7, caught them red-handed while they were mixing poision.

“One of our students, Mohammad Afzal, who stays in the hostel, went to drink water from a common water tap on Friday evening. He spotted two men mixing some tablets in the tank. When he asked them what they were doing, the other suspect, who was sitting on the madrassa’s fence with a country-made pistol, threatened him to keep quiet,” he said.

Hamid Ansari was recently attacked by the Sangh Parivar, in the last days of his tenure, for saying Muslims in India were experiencing “a feeling of unease, a sense of insecurity is creeping in”.
