In a big breakthrough in the lynching of Junaid Khan, Haryana Police arrested four accused in connection with the case, news agency ANI reported on Wednesday. The arrests come a day after Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said that perpetrators would be brought to justice.
Last week, 15-year-old Junaid was stabbed to death while returning from Delhi along with his two brothers after Eid shopping. An argument over train seats escalated and religious slurs were hurled at the brothers. A day after the incident, police took into custody a 35-year-old man who claimed that he was in a inebriated condition when he stabbed Junaid. The man, identified by Ramesh Kumar, also claimed that he was egged on by the crowd to stab him.
Faridabad Deputy Superintendent of Police (Government Railway Police) Mohinder Singh had said the police were scanning CCTV footage to identify the killers. “We are trying to procure the CCTV footage from various points which may help us in nabbing the remaining accused,” he had said. The police also announced a cash reward of Rs 1 lakh for those providing credible information related to case.
Earlier today, Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu condemned the stabbing. “Any incident of such nature is condemnable. It is brutal, atrocious. It will not be acceptable at all. People who are responsible for the same should be identified and dealt very firmly,” Naidu told reporters outside the Parliament.
On Eid, residents of Ballabhgarh wore black armbands in protest against the killing. The murder triggered pan-India protests under the banner ‘Not in my name’.
