Agra: A very shocking incident came to the limelight. Two unidentified men allegedly mixed “rat poison” in the water tank of a madarassa in Agra run by former Vice President of India Hamid Ansari’s wife and housing around 4000 kids, according to reports.
Reports said that the police have lodged an FIR in the case under IPC sections 328 (causing hurt by means of poison) and 506 (criminal intimidation) and are on the lookout for the assailants.
Ansair’s wife Salma Ansari has called the incident “shocking and scary”, media reported.
The incident has been reported a month after Hamid Ansari in a television interview during his last days in office stated that there is “a sense of insecurity” creeping in among the Muslims in India.
The Madrassa Chacha Nehru, located in the heart of Agra city is run by Al Noor Charitable Society headed by Salma Ansari.
According to the report, a student spotted two men mixing “some tablets” in the tank when he went to drink water from a common water tap on Friday evening. When he questioned them, the assailants threatened him with a country-made pistol to keep quiet.
The police have sent the water sample for forensic test.
