Banne Khan, a resident of Firozabad, died 6 years ago was also mentioned in the list of those who caused violence during the protests that stirred the state.

“My father, who died six years ago, has been booked under Sections 107 and 116 of the Code of Criminal Procedure because the police believe he is likely to disturb public tranquillity,” said Banne’s son Mohammad Sarfaraz Khan.

The notice read, “Banne Khan has to appear before the City Magistrate and will have to take bail by filing a bond of Rs 10 lakh.”

“They said my father must appear before a magistrate and apply for bail within seven days, else he would be arrested. They scolded me when I showed them his death certificate,” Sarfaraz said.

Others who recieved notices include, 90-year-old Shufi Ansar Hussain, Ansar has been engaged in the service of Jama Masjid for the last 58 years.
