Lok Sabha membership of MP and NCP leader Mohammad Faizal has been cancelled. The court recently sentenced him to 10 years in prison in an attempted murder case. In this background, he had to lose his MP membership. The Lok Sabha Secretariat has released a notification in this regard. In a case, the Sessions Court in Kavaratti gave a verdict on January 11. The notification issued by the Lok Sabha Secretariat stated that this disqualification will come into effect from the same day.
In 2009, Mohammad Faizal, who is currently the MP of Lakshadweep, along with some of his followers, was charged with attempted murder of Padanta Salih, the son-in-law of Congress leader and former Union Minister PM Saeed. Although Salih was attacked with lethal weapons and injured, his life was saved when he was taken to the hospital in time. A case was registered with his statement.
During the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, this incident happened with the involvement of political parties. The Kavaratti court that tried this case found MP Mohammed Faisal and four others guilty. They were sentenced to ten years in prison and fined Rs.
Nationalist Congress Party leader Mohammad Faizal has been serving as the Lakshadweep MP since 2014. Challenging the judgment of the Kavaratti Sessions Court, he prepared to approach the Kerala High Court.
