Protest against cow vigilantes' terror-lynchings in Bhopal, memo sent to President
BHOPAL: A protest against cow vigilantes' terror and the spate of lynchings was held in Bhopal on Monday.
Congress leader Arif Masood who staged the protest said that despite Supreme Court's clear directive, the incidents of lynching are on.
Citing examples of the killing of Akbar Khan in Rajasthan and the manner in which the accused in the case of Pahlu Khan's death were released, Masood said that the gangs are involved in spreading unrest in the society.
Masood said that policemen should also be made accused in the case as it was due to the delay that the victim died. "Instead of taking him directly to hospital, they took hours before he could get any medication".
"The self-styled 'gau rakshaks' are killing innocents and it is high time that a strong law is brought to stop the lynchings". The demonstration was held in Bhopal in the afternoon.
He gave examples of incidents in all parts of the country including the attacks by cow vigilantes in Madhya Pradesh--assaults in Mandsaur and Harda apart from recent lynching in Satna where a man was killed by the vigilantes.
