2017 Alwar lynching: Rajasthan police chargesheets Pehlu Khan, sons


PTI, Jun 29, 2019, 1:28 PM IST

Alwar: Two years after cow vigilantes lynched 55-year-old Pehlu Khan to death in Alwar, the Rajasthan police has chargesheeted him for cow smuggling.

The police have also chargesheeted Pehlu Khan’s sons – Irsad (25) and Arif (22) under sections 5, 8 and 9 while charges have been framed against the deceased under section 6 of the Rajasthan Bovine Animal (Prohibition of Slaughter and Regulation of Temporary Migration or Export) Act, 1995.

The chargesheet was prepared on December 30 last year, just 13 days after the Congress government led by Ashok Gehlot assumed charge in Rajasthan

Slamming the Congress party for “taking credit” for the chargesheet against Pehlu Khan, BJP leader Gyan Dev Ahuja said that at the time of the incident it was the Congress party which had extended financial assistance to Pehlu’s family.

In 2018, the previous BJP government in the state had filed a similar chargesheet against two associates of Khan, who were also attacked by the mob. There were two FIRs registered in the case. One was against the mob for beating Khan to death and second against him and his family for transporting cattle (cow) illegally out of the state.

The police had earlier given a clean chit to the six people accused of lynching Khan, a dairy farmer. The police’s decision was reportedly based on statements of the staff of a cow shelter and mobile phone records.

The case against Pehlu Khan will be closed as he has died, but it will continue against his sons.
