Mosque wall demolished by land mafia to frame Durga, says Waqf member

Lucknow: Claiming that the suspended IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal did not order the demolition of the wall of a mosque being built in a Greater Noida village, a member of Uttar Pradesh's Waqf Board has said the wall was demolished on the orders of the area's land and sand mining mafia to frame the officer.

"She did not order the demolition. After she left the site, the local mafia pulled it down," Waqf Board member Kadir Khan Jayaswal told NDTV.

Mr Jayaswal said the officer had only gone to the village on July 27 to investigate a complaint that the mosque was being built without permission.

He said Ms Nagpal was also investigating a complaint that the local mafia had grabbed land worth crores belonging to the Waqf Board.

"They are supporters of the Samajwadi Party. To protect them, this matter was made up", Mr Jayaswal alleged, adding, "As soon as this investigation would have been completed, the men who grabbed our land would've gone to jail."
