Muzaffarnagar: A chargesheet was filed against Uttar Pradesh minister Suresh Rana and nine others in a local court on Thursday for violating the Model Code of Conduct during the Assembly elections.

Charges related to making "statements conducing to public mischief and waging war against any Asiatic Power in alliance with the Government of India" have been slapped on Rana, who is also an accused in the 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots case.

Uttar Pradesh Police had booked Rana for violating the poll code. During campaigning in January he had said that curfew will be imposed in Kairana, Deoband and Moradabad if he gets elected again.

He is the Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Cane Development and Sugar Mills in the Yogi Adityanath government.​
