Regarding the demolition of house of Javed Mohammed urf Javed Pump, father of Afreen Fatima, the UP govt submitted that the construction was in violation of Prayagraj Development Authority rules and that proceedings were initiated much earlier than the riots in Allahabad.

However the legal fraternity have already been termed the contentious demolition as illegal and violates the Articles 14, 19 and 21 of the Constitution.
