The Rajasthan Police Criminal Investigation Department found that none of the six defendants in the lynching of Pehlu Khan in April of this year was actually involved in the attack against him.
Pehlu Khan, in his death declaration, named Om Yadav, Hukum Chand Yadav, Sudhir Yadav, Jagmal Yadav, Naveen Sharma and Rahul Saini as attackers.
Khan, a 55-year-old milk producer, was vaccinated in the Alwar Behror area in April of that year when she was carrying cows. Police withdrew their names from the FIR after saying that one of them was not even close to where he had been beaten. The report recommended registering one case against two other suspects. Seven people, who were arrested earlier, are released on bail. Two of them are minors.
These six p
The people were named as accused by Pehlu Khan, while he was on his deathbed in the hospital. They were found innocent in the investigation. The CID probe found that, from the outset, there was no evidence of its presence on the site.
“Investigations into the location of their mobile phones, as well as video and photographs of the incident revealed that none of the six were in the spot where Pehlu Khan was attacked, while two others, Deepak Yadav and Bheem Rathji, who was there and participated in the attack, was identified and reserved, “said Pankaj Kumar Singh, Deputy General Director of Crimes, Rajasthan in India Today.
Kamla Didi, chief of the Rajasthan vacheurs, claimed that Pehlu Khan was taken care of by some activists to name six suspects who protected the cows and protected a cow sanctuary.
According to one version of the facts, a vigilante group stopped certain vehicles carrying cows and took the cattle to a cow shelter under the supervision of the police. Another theory is that these people were just spectators and student leaders who arrested another truck, shot Pehlu Khan and assaulted him.
Khan, who was a cardiac patient, later died in the hospital.
Meanwhile, activists, including the PUCL (Popular Union for Civil Liberties), demanded the arrest of the six named by Khan in his death declaration, insisting that they were the main conspirators.
Rajasthan ADG (Crime) Pankaj Kumar Singh said it was not a planned crime, but one was executed in the heat of the moment. “So saying that the six could have deliberately avoided carrying their cell phones are wrong.” In addition, the cell phone is actively used by watchdog to communicate with the location of other vehicles that carry livestock, “added Singh.
Vipin Yadav, 19, a freshman in the PG College government, was recently elected president of the student union. Large scholarships with their posters were launched after this victory. He lived in Behror with his maternal family while his parents belonged to the village of Bhatora in the district of Mahendragarh of Haryana. His mother Preeti aka Babli is a Sarpanch.
Vipin stopped as he watched people gather around some vehicles from which the animals were removed. The crowd spoke of Muslims carrying cattle for the massacre. He is accused of directing the assault in the heat of the moment.
He was joined by two young men, both 17-year-old passengers. One of them was nicknamed Mithun because he used to imitate the actor Mithun Chakravarty and even defeated the bearers of the cow and the smugglers. Both were sent to juvenile homes and later released.
The other four, who have been arrested to date, include Dayanand Yadav, 47, who was on his way to buy things for his father’s last rites.
Another two, Kalu Ram Ahir, 44 and Yogesh alias Dholia, 30 were also spectators who joined the assault.
There are seven defendants who are fleeing, and rewards have been announced for some of them.
None of the six gaurakshaks, named by Pehlu Khan, are considered prime suspects for lack of evidence. They are not included in any of the videos so far.
One version said that while the six had taken cattle from four vehicles to a cow shelter, the crowd took over when Vipin Yadav sued two other vehicles carrying cattle. Pehlu Khan was injured in this attack on two vehicles.
According to police, those carrying cattle were not carriers but smugglers because they had no license to transport livestock to another state, in this case Haryana. Police said they had a “buy as a sales receipt” test in the case of only two livestock.
