Outfits seek security for Nuh assault victim

Gurugram, August 4

Muslim organisations on Tuesday demanded police security for the family of Nuh resident Lukman, who is struggling for his life after he was beaten up by a mob last week on the suspicion of carrying beef in his truck.

They also sought that Lukman be shifted to a "better and secure hospital".

Members of the Muslim Ekta Manch and the Jamiatulama protested outside Jama Masjid in Sadar Bazar here before marching towards the office of Commissioner of Police (CP) KK Rao.

"The police are dragging their feet on the investigation. More than 10 accused are still on the run. As the case is attracting attention, Lukman's family is under immense pressure to withdraw the case. Besides, he is not getting proper treatment at the government hospital in Nuh. All we want is justice," said community lader Haji Shahjad Khan.

Lukman's father Bilal said, "We are scared. They (the accused) may kill my son in hospital. We have the support, but we are still terrified."

The CP said, "The accused have been booked for attempt to murder. The crime unit is handling the case. We assure the family of a fair investigation. All accused, including policemen who failed to act, will be taken to task." — OC
