Killing of Hafiz Junaid: Haryana police arrests four more involved in lynching

Haryana Police arrested four more people in relation to the lynching of a teenager Hafiz Junaid, who was returning to his Ballabhgarh home after shopping for Eid, reported ANI. A total of five people has been arrested till now.

Last week, a 35-year-old man who was identified as Ramesh Kumar was taken into custody, The Indian Express reported. In the report, it is stated that Kumar claimed that he was in an inebriated condition when he stabbed Junaid.

After the incident, police had on Sunday announced a reward of Rs 1 lakh to anyone providing credible information leading to arrest of other accused in the case.The Hindustan Times had reported on Tuesday that Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar assured that those who participated in the lynching will be punished

What actually happened?

In an earlier report, Firstpost said that while travelling on the Delhi-Mathura passenger train, Junaid had a fight with other passengers over a seat. The fight turned violent as someone claimed that the food packet that the group was carrying had beef in it.

People watched and even encouraged the mob who proceeded to repeatedly stab Junaid with a knife, all the while branding him "anti-national".

Junaid was killed while his two brothers, Hashim and Sakir, were injured while the mob hurled slurs against them on Thursday night.

The lynching has caused outrage across the country and sparked a debate over nationalism. To protest against the killing, "Not In My Name"  marches were held in various cities across the country on Wednesday.
