New Delhi, Oct 6: In a fresh development in the horrific Dadri incident, in which a Muslim man was lynched by mob over alleged rumours of consumption of beef, the Uttar Pradesh government in its report submitted to the Centre hasn't mentioned any motive.
As per an NDTV report, Samajwadi Party government in its report claimed crowd attacked 52-year-old Mohammad Akhlaq over allegations that he had consumed "banned animal meat".
The report sent to the Centre also avoids the word "beef".
Earlier last week, expressing his anguish over the inhumane incident, Union Minister Kiren Rijiju had said the issue is being "excessively politicised" and government will take action once it gets the report from Uttar Pradesh on the incident.
"Excessive politics is being done on the issue. Once, we get the report we will take action accordingly," the Minister of State for Home told reporters on Saturday.
The Centre had on Thursday sought a detailed report from Uttar Pradesh government over the incident and asked it to ensure that no such incident recurs.
In a communication, the Home Ministry had told the state government that a report about lynching of the 50-year-old man should be sent to it as early as possible and the steps taken to find the guilty and punish them.
Aklakh was beaten to death and his 22-year-old son Danish was critically injured by a 200-strong mob which barged into their house at Dadri in Greater Noida on Monday night following rumours that the family had consumed beef. Cow slaughter is banned in Uttar Pradesh.
