Lucknow: The tenth and last accused from Dadri lynching case where a Muslim man was beaten to death in Dadri, Uttar Pradesh, was arrested, police said on Monday.

The accused Hari Om, was holed up at a relative’s house in Sardhana town of western Uttar Pradesh and was picked up by police late Sunday following a tip-off by an informer.

Dadri Circle Officer (CO) Anurag Singh, while confirming the arrest, said Hari Om was the last of the ten accused in lynching of 50-year-old Mohammad Akhlaq, who was killed by a mob in Bisahada village on September 28.

Police had put his phone on surveillance and after his location was detected, a police team raided the house and arrested him.

Soon after the Dadri lynching, the six accused — Shri Om, Vivek, Gaurav, Saurabh, Sandip and Rupendra had been arrested, and another two — Shivam and Vishal were arrested two days after the incident, police officials told IANS.

Vishal is son of a local Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader. The ninth accused, a minor, was arrested from Delhi on October 12 and now, the last accused has also been apprehended.

Akhlaq was beaten to death by an angry mob on September 28, while his son Danish was injured seriously after announcements were made from a nearby temple that the family had consumed beef.

The incident sparked off an outrage across the country.
