New Delhi, 12 April: A delegation of Social Democratic Party of India-SDPI comprising its National Vice President Adv. Sharfuddin Ahmad, Manoj Kumar, Om Pal, Danish and others visited the family of the victims in the village Jaisinghpur, District Nuh, Haryana today, in the context of horrifying violence staged by the anti-social elements on 1st April 2017. The so called “Gau Rakshaks” have brutally attacked and lynched Pahlu Khan and cruelly attacked and tried to kill Irshad, Arif, Rafiq and Azmat causing grievous injuries. They were carrying five milking cows with relevant papers in a pickup van, after purchasing them from Jaipur Cow Fair. While on the way at Behror in District Alwar, the Gau Rakshak criminals stopped them, robbed the animals and cash and then thrashed them mercilessly. Pehlu Khan succumbed to his injuries on 3rd April 2017 in Kailash Hospital.
Surprisingly, even after 10 days of the incident neither any official of the Government or the Police visited the injured persons nor provided any financial help to the injured persons for the loss and damages. The culprits mentioned in the FIR are roaming freely and the Rajasthan Police have not taken any initiation to arrest them. The Government of Haryana and Rajasthan have not declared any compensation the victim’s orphaned family and the families of injured persons who are not in a position to provide medical treatment because of acute poverty. One of the injured persons, Azmat aged about 26 years has got fracture in his spinal cord making him disable to move out of the bed and if proper care and treatment is not provided, may become permanently disable. Azmat has a son, wife and old parents who are totally dependent on him for their livelihood.
All the victims have no means for survival as they are agricultural laborers and milk sellers. The death of Pehlu Khan, left his entire family of four sons and four daughters, some of them minors, aged father and mother, in a great distress as there is no earning hand now. Another injured person Rafiq is in very pathetic condition with old parents, wife and three small children. No any help from any quarter has still been received.
SDPI took this incident very seriously as this is a part of continuing violence perpetrated by so called Gau Rakshak criminals, who act with impunity due to the support by the governments. SDPI has protested in several places during the last 10 days against the terror and violence instigated by the ‘Gau Rakshak” criminals and inaction from the govt. of Rajasthan.
SDPI warned the government that if proper action is not taken, it will be compelled to intensify the movement of the protests till justice is ensured to the victims.
- The criminals whose name appeared in the FIR must be arrested by the police of Rajasthan and protection provided by the home ministry to the culprits must be stopped and he must be removed from the home ministry.
- In view of the situation created after the death of late Pehlu Khan a son of Pehlu Khan must be provided government job.
- That a full Compensation of rupees 1 crore for the death of Pehlu Khan and Rupees 40 lakhs to each of the injured persons be provided without delay.
- That to stop the violence and to ensure the security to the movement of innocent persons, preventive laws must be applied against all the accused persons so that they may not succeed to be enlarged.
