On Friday the Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra termed the verdict of the trial court as “shocking” in the Pehlu Khan lynching case. She has further hoped that the Rajasthan government will do justice in the matter.
“The lower court’s decision in the Pehlu Khan case is shocking. In our country, there should be no place of inhumanity and mob killing is a heinous crime,” she tweeted.
In another tweet, she said, “Rajasthan government’s initiative to bring law against mob killing is commendable. Hope by getting justice for Pehlu Khan, this will set a good example.”
The trial court of Alwar has given the benefit of doubt to all the six accused and released them in the lynching case.
On April 1, 2017, 55-year-old Pehlu Khan, who was a dairy farmer from Haryana’s Nuh, was beaten up allegedly by cow vigilantes near Behror in Rajasthan on the Delhi-Alwar highway.
