28 January 2023: A 22-year-old Muslim was killed by cow vigilantes who suspected that he was smuggling cattle, in state of Haryana, which is ruled by Modi’s Hindutva government.
Police trying to protect the Hindutva organizations involved, saying that he died after his car collided with a tempo.
Waris Khan was a car mechanic who had been waylaid by cow vigilantes, and he was beaten up by Bajrang Dal workers, on suspicious of cattle transportation.
According to the friend Shahid Khan claimed that Monu Manesar of Bajrang Dal went live on Facebook that showed how he and his associates were assaulting Waris Khan and pushing them into his vehicle. The Bajrang Dal men were carrying weapons as well, Shahid Khan said.
But police refuse to register an assault complaint, despite the fact that in the video, Waris can be seen answering Hindutva goons with no injuries.
While in another video, the Hindutva group members could be seen carrying weapons and posing with the three injured men in front of the damaged car.
Shahid said: “We are waiting for the post mortem, and we have filed a complaint before the police. They have noted it in the daily register but they did not file a case. We demand that police should act on our complaint and file a case of murder against Bajrang Dal men.”
“What gives Bajrang Dal men authority to kidnap and beat up people,” he added. “Are they a police force or some authority? Who are they? There is a police force to deal with crime.”
Meanwhile, human rights body Amnesty International India on Sunday said it was “horrified” by the killing and demanded that Haryana government “promptly, independently and impartially investigate whether his murder was motivated by discrimination and intolerance”.
