He said chargesheet will be filed within stipulated period, without elaborating further.

Sanjay Rana, the father of one of the accused, said, "We are happy that at least FIR was registered. Investigation will nail the accused."

Meanwhile Akhlaq's family has decided to challenge the FIR in the high court seeking directions for its quashing.

"We will move high court," Jaan Mohammad, brother of Akhlaq, said.

Akhlaq was killed by a mob on 29 September last year on the suspicion that his family stored and consumed beef at their home.

A forensic lab is reported to have said that the meat found in Akhlaq's home was beef.

Residents of Bishada village in Dadri had met the Gautam Budh Nagar SSP on 5 June to press their demand for registration of an FIR against Akhlaq's family for alleged cow slaughter, following which he had ordered a probe into the charge.

Yesterday, a judicial magistrate court had ordered investigation and lodging of FIR of cow slaughter against Akhlaq's family.
