Gurugram: The Gurugram Police have failed to transfer Mohit Yadav, also known as Monu Manesar, a member of the Hindu right-wing Bajrang Dal, from Rajasthan, where he is currently incarcerated, to Haryana on a production warrant. The prison authorities in Rajasthan declined to present him before the court, citing security concerns.

The Haryana Police is yet to get custody of the prime suspect behind the July 31 violence in Nuh district that left six Muslims dead, including two home guards and a Muslim cleric Moulana Saad.

Monu is currently lodged at the Ajmer High Security Jail and the Rajasthan Police have raised security and safety concerns.

The Haryana Police had sought Monu’s remand in an attempted murder case registered against him at the Pataudi police station and he had to be produced in Pataudi court on Tuesday.

Personnel of the Rajasthan Police told the Pataudi court on Monday that Monu required a high safety transfer from Ajmer to Gurugram and it did not have enough guards to execute it.

A senior police officer of the Gurugram police said they will now move a fresh request and have offered the Rajasthan Police its staff and guards to drive him to the Pataudi court.
