The Special Investigation Team probing the Muzaffarnagar riots has sought warrant from a local court to bring riot accused Subodh Kumar in Muzaffarnagar, who is lodged in Meerut jail in connection with another case.

Mr. Kumar was arrested in an encounter with Baghpat police while he was on his way to allegedly murder someone on March 7, 2014 following which he was lodged in Meerut jail, SIT sources said.

The accused has been absconding since the riots took place in 2013, they said.
