Who killed Pehlu Khan? Answer is no one, if the report of Rajasthan Police is to be believed. The CB-CID recently sent a report to Alwar police recommending the removal of names of six accused from the case as they were found “not guilty” after an investigation.
On April 1, Pehlu Khan on the way to Haryana – his home after purchasing cattle in Rajasthan was beaten to severe injuries that lead to his death by cow vigilantes.
In his dying statement, Phelu Khan had named six persons Hukum Chand, Navin Sharma, Jagmal Yadav, Om Prakash, Sudheer and Rahul Saini as the attackers.
“We have withdrawn the reward against the six persons after an investigation by CB-CID into their role,” the Indian Express quoted Alwar SP. Rajasthan CB-CID has been investigating the case ever since it was transferred to them from Alwar police in July.
According to the Indian Express report, the CB-CID recently sent a report to Alwar police recommending the removal of names of six accused from the case as they were found “not guilty” after an investigation, which included statements of policemen and employees of a gaushala. The call detail records of the six men further strengthened their case about their location.
“This is betrayal. We heard the names (of the accused) too. We will seek an inquiry again,” said Pehlu’s son Irshad, who was with him during the assault. Police had arrested seven others, five of whom have been granted bail so far. The case against them will continue.
