Dadri lynching case: Allahabad High Court stays arrest of Mohd Akhlaq's family

Lucknow: In a big relief to the family of Mohammed Akhlaq, who was lynched to death by a violent mob over suspicion of consuming beef in the Bisada village near Dadri in Noida last year, the Allahabad High Court on Friday stayed their arrest in connection with the case.

Mohammed Akhlaq's family had moved the Allahabad High Court against a recent session court order directing a police case be filed against them for storing and consuming beef.

Akhlaq's Mother, wife, daughter and sons were made accused in FIR after session court's order.

Akhlaq's murder had triggered a huge public outcry and sharp criticism for the Centre over its failure to protect the minorities.

National President of Rashtriya Ulama Council, Maulana Amir Rahsadi Madni had alleged that evidences in the Dadri lynching case were "tampered" and raised questions over reports of Dadri and Mathura lab reports on the sample of meat sent for examination.

The sessions court had earlier ordered that a police case be filed against them following a petition by a neighbour in their village Bisada. The petition was backed by those accused of Akhlaq's murder.

Akhlaq's neighbour had claimed that on September 26 last year, Akhlaq and his son Danish were seen beating the calf. Later, a villager saw Akhlaq holding down the calf while his brother killed it, the petition said.

 

 

Akhlaq's son Sartaj, working with the Indian Air Force, however, alleged that there were many loopholes in the recent forensic report, after which the petition demanding legal action against the family was filed.

He said his family was being treated like criminals instead of victims. "We have already met the chief minister once and if needed we will meet him for the second time," he said.
