Dadri Lynching : Allahabad HC Stays Arrest Of Mohammad Akhlaq’s Family

The Allahabad High Court on Friday stayed the arrest of Mohammad Akhlaq’s family, except his brother in the Dadri lynching case where Akhlaq was lynched to death by a violent mob over rumours that he and his family had killed a calf and eaten beef.

The incident occurred in September 2015.

The family had moved the high court after a Noida court had asked the Uttar Pradesh Police to file a case against them in July, following a petition filed by villagers who claimed they had seen Akhlaq’s brother Jaan Mohammad slitting a calf’s throat.

The petition was backed by those accused of Akhlaq’s murder.

Akhlaq’s Mother, wife, daughter and sons were made accused in FIR after session court’s order.
