Manohar Lal Khattar condemns Hafiz Junaid's killing, efforts on to nab accused
Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar condemned the brutal killing of a Muslim youth onboard a Mathura-bound train.
Chandigarh: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday condemned the brutal killing of a Muslim youth onboard a Mathura-bound train and said that efforts were on to nab the other accused in the case.
Khattar, who had invited criticism from various quarters for not condemning the shocking incident or expressing condolence, said, "I condemn the incident and appeal to people to maintain peace".
"Efforts are on to nab the other accused in the case," he told reporters in Chandigarh on the sidelines of a meeting.
The victim's family was on Sunday given a cheque of Rs 5 lakh by the District Red Cross while Wakf Board chairman announced another Rs 5 lakh and a job to one of Jallaludin's sons.
Junaid was stabbed to death while his brothers, Hashim and Sakir were injured by a mob which also allegedly hurled slurs against them aboard the Delhi-Mathura passenger train between Ballabgarh and Mathura stations on Thursday night.
These promises were similar to what Kejriwal made ahead of the Delhi Assembly Elections in 2014 Delhi Assembly polls and which had turned out to be a core talking point in the run-up to elections
