Dhule: In what is being alleged as a 'deliberate' attempt to rub salt on the wounds of the already shattered riot victims, and a 'criminal display of negligence' by the government, the compensation cheque issued to one of them did not have the signature of the concerned officer and hence was returned by the bank.


Jaleel Ansari, one of the riot victim was handed over a cheque of Rs. 30,000 in the name of compensation on February 07 more than a month after the huge loss he suffered during the riot which broke out in city on January 06.


As per the guidelines issued to him while receiving the cheque, he opened an account in a local bank and deposited the cheque. However, the bank returned the cheque with a memo that said the cheque did not have the signature of the authorised person, Advocate Pervez Tamboli said while talking to


A shocked Jaleel Ansari rushed to the collector office with the bounced cheque and pleaded with the concerned officer to sign. However, the officer declined to sign and asked him to come next day.


"He refused to sign the cheque even though Jaleel Ansari visited his office three to four times. Tired, he approached me and then we issued a notice to the concerned department under section 138 of the Negotiable Instrument Act on Friday", Advocate Tamboli said.


He said that it was a clear case of criminal negligence and harassment to the already victimised Jaleel Ansari. "Its not a technical mistake. Its deliberate and done with an intension to victimise my client", he said.


"We will be filing a criminal case against the erring officer if my client does not get the compensation amount within 15 days", he added.


Communal violence broke out in this northern Maharashtra city on January 06 over non-payment of a food-bill. Police claimed it was ‘targeted’ and hence had to open fire to control the unruly mob. Six people were killed and more than 40 others were injured in the police firing. Barring one person from the Hindu community who is injured in the firing, all those killed and injured in the police firing are Muslims.


According to the loss assessment report submitted to the government, residential and commercial premises worth 1,37,52,650 rupees belonging to some 133 people were looted, burnt or damaged in the riot. Out of them, shops and homes belonging to 29 people were found completely damaged.


The government announced the compensation to the victims on January 15. However, the amounts were disbursed only to 32 victims that too more than a month after the riot.
