Parvez, family being "harassed" for refusing to withdraw case against Adityanath: Complaint filed before NHRC

Rihai Manch (RM), a Uttar Pradesh civil rights organization, has accused the state government of harassing the family of Parvez Parvaz, who is fighting a case against UP CM Yogi Adityanath. It quotes Parvez's wife, who in a letter to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has feared that members of the family could be implicated in false cases.
Accusing Adityanath of terrorizing the family of Parvez Parvaz, RM said, complaints have also been lodged to Uttar Pradesh's Principal Secretary, Home, Director General of Police, and senior police officials of Gorakhpur.
RM said, the CM is misusing his post, adding, the matter is in the Supreme Court, and the Chief Justice should take cognizance so that Parvez and his family feel secure, as the law suit filed by social activists Asad Hyatt and Parvez against Adityanath is pending in the Supreme Court about his "inflammatory" speech of 2007.
RM president Muhammad Shoeb said that there is no case against any member of Parvez's family. "Police is intimidating and trying to trap them in fake lawsuits. This is all because Parvez has refused to take back the case he has filed against Adityanath, who had ordered withdrawal of all police complaints against him on becoming Chief Minister. A case was filed against Parvez in Rajghat, District Gorakhpur."
