Mathura: A local court on Friday refused to accept the police's claim that Jawahar Bagh encroachers leader Ram Vriksha Yadav is dead and ordered a DNA test of his viscera and match it with his family members' DNA sample.

"Find out the whereabouts of the family of Ram Vriksha and ensure DNA test of his viscera in the presence of Chief Medical Officer Mathura," Ninth Additional District Judge VS Tripathi ordered Highway police station SHO Subodh Yadav.

 

Tripathi did not accept the SHO's contention that Ram Vriksha Yadav is dead as his body has been identified by one Har Nath.

"Identification by only family members or relatives can be accepted. Find out the whereabout of family members of Ram Vriksha and then ensure DNA test," he said.

The Magistrate passed the order during a hearing in a 2011 case in which Ram Vriksha was an accused and a non-bailable warrant was issued against him.

The prosecution of the case Suresh Chandra Dubey said that on March 10, 2011, Ram Vriksha and his associates had a scuffle with employees at Baba Jai Gurudeo petrol Pump since they were not selling him petrol at 40 litres per rupee.

 

An FIR was registered against Ram Vriksha and his associates at Highway police station in the case. Since Ram Vriksha and his associates did not turn up in the court in the case, non bailable warrant was issued against them.

The SHO today submitted in the court that since Ram Vriksha is no more, the case may be dropped. However, the magistrate refused to accept it and ordered DNA sample matching.
