A forensic test has revealed that the family of Dadri lynching victim Muhammad Akhlaq had been storing mutton in their fridge and not beef as suggested by a mob which had last week beaten the man and his son on the pretext of their family’s rumoured consumption of beef, Times of India reported.
Akhlaq, a 50-year-old man was beaten to death, while his 22-year-old son was severely injured after it was rumoured that the family had been storing and consuming beef, police said at the time.
“My father was dragged outside the house and beaten with bricks. We came to know later that an announcement had been made from the temple about us eating beef,” she said.
This has been called “religion”!
