“For past one week, houses of Muslims are being looted. They were beaten as well. One day back, District Magistrate and the Superintendent of Police have beaten them as well,” Khan said during a press conference.

“77,000 red cards have been given to Muslim people without any official signature and the police have asked them not to come out of houses. They have been snatched their rights to vote. The order was neither issued by the state government or the central government," he said. The SP leader also alleged that faulty machines were deployed in areas dominated by Muslims.

Khan contested in Rampur against BJP's Jaya Prada. Polling for this constituency was held on 18 April.
