NCHRO filed a complaint in SHRC, Haryana against case of mob lynching


NEW DELHI:
On May 16, 2021, 27-year-old Asif Hussain Khan was out to buy medicines with his two cousins. Asif was a gym instructor in Kheda Khalilpur in the Nuh district of Haryana.

It is alleged that while he was out, a mob came up and started beating up Asif and his two cousins with sticks. They then abducted Asif. A little later on Asif’s dead body was found in the village.

Asif’s family has alleged that he was made to chant “Jai Shri Ram” and was abused with anti-Muslim slurs. The police, however, has denied the claim.

Following the incident, there were protests in the said district in Haryana. The police have arrested some of the people protesting claiming that they were pelting stones on the police. Some of the accused in the case, however, have not been arrested.

Against the incident, the National Confederation of Human Rights Organisations filed a complaint in the State Human Rights Commission of Haryana on May 18, 2021. The complaint was filed by the Vice President of the Delhi state committee of NCHRO, Ms. Swati Sinha.

We have urged the SHRC to look into the matter and ensure a fair investigation.

Sincerely,

Ishu Jaiswal,

Coordinator,

NCHRO
