According to the complaint lodged with Kairana police station, four persons including Kamran on Saturday entered the cinema theatre office of Rama Palace and looted Rs 5,000 cash from the owner, Pradeep Mittal, at pistol-point besides beating him up.

Mittal said if the law and order situation did not improve, he would be forced to migrate.

The incident comes amid a controversy over BJP MP Hukum Singh's claim that Hindus were forced to 'migrate' from Kairana, which was affected in the 2013 riots in Muzaffarnagar surrounding areas, due to law and order issues.
