Lynching incident: Law will take its own course: Hooda
Chandigarh: Five days after a youth was
lynched by a mob of villagers in Haryana`s Jind district,
Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Monday dismissed as
baseless the allegation that state machinery had been slow to
react to the incident.
"It is not true (that state machinery has adopted
lax attitude in the case)...law will take its own course,"
Hooda told reporters here when asked to comment on the
Singhwal village lynching incident.
Asked about another incident in Jhajjar, where a khaap
panchayat had issued a diktat to the family of a man who
married within the sub caste to leave the village, Hooda
said "these are social issues".
Twenty-one-year-old Ved Pal of Kaithal district was lynched last
week by a mob of about 400 villagers, when armed with a
Court`s order, he had gone to bring back his wife Sonia from
her native village in Jind.
