A former Uttar Pradesh Minister and his MLC brother were among 156 people booked for the Kosi Kalan communal clashes, which claimed four lives.
Choudhary Laxmi Narayan, Agriculture Minister in the previous BSP regime, and his brother Lekhraj Choudhary have been charged with armed assault, incitement to violence, loot, arson, attempt to murder and conspiracy. But Mr. Lekhraj said: “Normalcy cannot be restored by implicating innocents. It is surprising that I have been implicated, because I was attending the Assembly at the time of riots.”
