The police have registered an FIR against unknown persons for defacing public property after posters demanding the arrest of Union Minister Kamal Nath were pasted on the walls of the Qutub Minar on February 25.

The posters were allegedly put up by the All India Imam Association (AIIA).

“The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) which reports to Kamal Nath,demolished a part of the Ghausia masjid in Mehrauli,and many people who tried to prevent the masjid from getting demolished in December were arrested illegally. They are still in Tihar. The Delhi Development Authority used forged papers to prove that the land on which the masjid stood,belonged to the government. We have asked everyone to court arrest for the cause of the masjid. We also met UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday regarding the same issue.”

According to police,an FIR into the matter was registered at the Mehrauli police station under sections 3 of the Defacement of Public Property Act. No arrests have been made till now. Police said investigations were on in the matter.
