Dadri Lynching: FIR registered against Akhlaq’s family
Gautambudh Nagar (Noida): A case has been registered on Friday against Akhlaq’s family members under relevant provisions of ‘Cow Slaughter Act’ by Chief Judicial Magistrate court.
Hearing on a petition filed by Surajpal of Bishada, the court on Thursday had ordered to register a case against the family members of Akhlaq, who was lynched to death by an outraged mob last year.
Court had also ordered Jarcha police to file a case under animal cruelty act against the family.
Akhlaq was beaten to death by an enraged mob on September 28 last and 16 people including few minors were jailed in this case. The villagers have submitted the pictures of incident as a proof in the court.
Additional forces have been deployed in the village soon after the court announced its verdict in the case while the district administration has appealed the natives to maintain peace and harmony in the state.
Earlier, a forensic laboratory in Mathura on May 31 had confirmed that the piece of flesh found from Akhlaq’s refrigerator belonged either to Cow or its progeny.
It may also be mentioned that Uttar Pradesh government declined the demand of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into this matter and in an affidavit filed in Allahabad High Court it said that ‘police was investigating the case fairly’. Adding, the accused were trying to mislead the probe by giving it a political colour.
The order of the court may once again incite the politics of beef in the country as earlier a debate on intolerance was created by intellectuals over this issue.
