Three months have passed since Pehlu Khan a dairy farmer, was lynched by a mob of self – proclaimed cow vigilantes. CID’s crime branch has taken up the case from the state police. Khan’s family members are disappointed by the slow moving probe and have threatened to commit mass suicide if accused is granted bail.
Here is the Video of his Lynching:
Pehlu Khan’s uncle stated that, “the pace of investigation is very disappointing, despite strong evidence, the accused seems to be getting bail, within three months”. If that happens all his family members will take the extreme step to commit suicide in court.
Pehlu Khan was attacked and beaten mercilessly while he was transporting cows to his small dairy farm in Alwar. He died two days later.
At an event organised in Delhi by Bhumi Adhikar Andolan Pehlu Khans two sons, Irshad and Arif, criticised the government on dividing the Country on communal lines. Irshad khan said,“if the government desires, it can stop the gau rakshaks and the RSS from creating terror and injecting communal poison in the society. However, these organisations confidently say they are not scared of the law.”
He said that the government has made its intention clear by failing to take actions against the accused. The call for cow protection is made to create a divide between Hindus and Muslims.
