15 chargesheeted in Dadri lynching case

New Delhi: After almost three months of the gruesome Dadri lynching incident, a chargesheet was finally filed naming 15 persons. Notably, a minor was also named in the chargesheet.

A mob lynched Mohammed Akhlaq on 28th September in Bisada village for allegedly eating beef in his house. Akhlaq’s son was also thrashed.

The chargesheet had no mention of beef and used the word ‘meat’.

Even the FIR did not mention the word beef.

While 19 people were accused, only 15 were named in the chargesheet. Reportedly four people will be chrgesheeted at a later date.  Police asked the Court to examine the age of the juvenile.

Vishal Rana, son of the local BJP functionary Sanjay Rana was also named in the chargesheet. He said that they were provoked and told that Akhlaq had killed a cow. Vishal and his cousin Shivam were named as the main conspirators in the incidents.

Police cited Akhlaq’s Danish’s critical condition as the reason behind the delay in filing the chargesheet.

The incident raked up a lot of controversy and tension in the country.

It also triggered the ‘intolerance’ debate and the ‘award wapasi’ movement.

The government’s inaction drew a lot of flak from various quarters. The issue was politicized by all the political parties and many controversial statements were given subsequently.
