"There has been no requisition from the victim's family for police security. The administration is monitoring the situation. If there is any threat, security will be provided," the officer said.

Though the youths have been discharged from the hospital, they still have to go for check-ups and work. "I have been informed they are not completely safe", she said.

"Hence, I have requested the administration to provide them police security," Karat said.

The killing of 17-year-old Junaid had triggered a nationwide outrage. His brothers had alleged that they were called "beef eaters" by the accused.
