Jaipur : A man who is one of the accused in Rakbar mob lynching case has been granted bail by the Rajasthan High Court. Naresh Kumar was provided relief by Justice Sabina after three of his previous bail pleas were rejected.
In his bail application, Kumar submitted that there was no witness or evidence to substantiate his involvement in the mob lynching incident.
Several other accused are also out on bail.
Rakbar Khan was killed on the night of July 20, 2018, when he and his friend Aslam Khan were brutally attacked by a mob while they were transporting milch cows on foot to their home in Haryana’s Kolgaon from a village in Rajasthan’s Alwar district.
While Aslam managed to escape, Rakbar was caught and grievously beaten. He succumbed to his injuries a few hours later.
Rakbar had said in his statement before succumbing to his injuries, as mentioned in the FIR, that he and his partner Aslam had bought two cows from Ladpur and were taking them home on foot when some men stopped them and started beating them with sticks, which has caused him severe injuries.
An FIR was registered under Sections 143 (unlawful assembly), 341 (wrongful restraint), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 302 (murder) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Indian Penal Code.
