Kairana, June 17: The Uttar Pradesh police were quick to dismiss reports of migration that have been taking place in Kairana. The BJP is adamant to take this issue forward and today the party leaders in the state say that it is not just a cause of concerns for Hindus, but members of other communities too.
The point that needs to be addressed here is the extortion racket. Mukeem Kala the man behind the extortion racket is at loggerheads with his rival Fukran who too runs a similar racket. There are also former members of the Kala gang who too indulge in the extortion racket.
The UP police however quickly dismissed all allegations and say that they have reigned in on the gang run by Kala. It is a well known fact that Kala and his associates operate from the Saharanpur jail. Moreover the extortion racket is not limited just to Kala's gang, but his rivals and former members too are active in this racket.
Two escaped from prison
The UP police had arrested Kala and 25 of his gang members. However two members, Dr Israr and Wajid Kala had miraculously escaped from jail. While Dr Israr was nabbed a month back, Wajid is still at large.
In addition to this there was a falling out within the gang before the arrests took place last year. Three members of the Kala gang- Mehtab, Sabeer and Sader after breaking away ran a parallel racket in the same area.
In addition to this there are the gang members of the Fukran group who too focus on the same area. While the number of migrants could be debated, there are many who have been targeted by these gangs. The intention is to threaten the locals and chase them away so that their properties could be taken over.
However in this entire racket, Kala is the most dangerous. In hush-hush tones sources say that he is very much running his racket from jail.
Mukeem Kala had entered the world of crime in the year 2010. Since then his rise has been fast although his first crime was a robbery. Kala who is currently lodged in jail runs a gang of 25 members today. While all of them are still in jail, it is quite ironic that he has managed to run his empire.
Kala has a host of cases lodged against him which also include the murder of four police personnel. He is a much feared person in Kairana. His activities in Kariana have been extortion and also driving people out of their homes in a bid to snatch their property.
He has cases registered not just in Uttar Pradesh, but also in Haryana as well. The more surprising aspect regarding this man is that his empire is intact despite him and 24 members of his gang being in jail since 2015. This gives an indication that he is operating out of jail.
