Alwar lynching: National Minority Commission dismisses district administration report

New Delhi: The district administration is trying to conceal the facts in Akbar Khan lynching incident. Khan was lynched allegedly on suspicions of cow smuggling by the gau rakshaks. National Minority Commission expressed anger over it. Dismissing the report submitted by the district administration, National Minority Commission issued a notice asking why the district administration should not be summoned to the commission.

Besides National Minority Commission is awaiting the report of the high-level committee formed under the chairmanship of Secretary Home minister of India. Speaking to the Inquilab an Urdu daily, Chairman National Minority Commission Syed Ghayoorul Hasan Rizvi told that the report submitted by the district administration to the commission is not based on facts but it was tried to conceal the facts. He said when Rajasthan home minister Gulab Chand Kataria himself is telling that Akbar Khan died due to police negligence then how the police can be given clean chit. The question is what the police did for 3 hours? Why was Akbar not rushed to the hospital?

It must be recalled that lambasting the local police for its negligence, the National Commission for Minorities had sought a detailed report from authorities on the issue, especially asking them to provide details of the incident whether there was any delay on police’s part to take victim Rakbar Khan to hospital.
