Pehlu Khan Lynching: All Accused Acquitted, Where is the Justice?
No one killed Pehlu Khan. At least that seems to be the message post the judgment by a trial court in Rajasthan, that was hearing the 2017 lynching case involving Khan.
The case was registered under several sections of the IPC – 302 (murder), 147 (rioting) and 341 (wrongful restraint). And the verdict was arrived at after deposing 44 witnesses, including Khan’s two sons Irshad and Aarif.
There are also videos of the incident, that would ideally be seen as proof that he was indeed attacked by a mob. Then, there's also his dying declaration. And yet, no one was convicted of the crime.
In this episode of The Big Story, we’ll take a closer look at the highlights of the verdict and identify possible discrepancies in the handling of this case. Tune in!
