Gurgaon Muslim family, who was attacked threatens mass suicide due to ‘police pressure to withdraw FIR ‘

Mob attacking Muslim family at Gurugram

Levelling serious allegations against police  the Muslim  family, who was attacked by a mob on Holy , threatened of mass suicide on Monday, alleging that it was being pressured by police  to withdraw the FIR. 

“We are the victims of the incident but Gurgaon Police has registered an FIR against two men of our family in a bid to pressure us,” Akhtar said to PTI.

A mob of over 40 persons pelted stones at the house of Mhd Akhtar in Bhup Singh Nagar area here and beat up members of his family, in an attack triggered by a game of cricket on Holi. The attack was captured on a cellphone by one of the victims and the video had gone viral on internet. The clip showed women of the family pleading for mercy while a man was being thrashed, police had said.

“The matter is now in public domain as the video of the assault went viral on internet. Still the police has failed to arrest over 35 goons. If the Gurgaon Police and the district administration do not help us, we have no option but to commit mass suicide,” Akhtar said.

The family also submitted a memorandum to sub-divisional magistrate of Sohna, urging speedy investigation in the case and said it would commit mass suicide if justice was not be delivered.

Police, however, said it was not favouring anyone.



  1. An FIR should also be made against such police officials pressurising the victims to withdraw FIR. As far as charges are pressed against the victims, it must be kept in mind that the concerned Investigating Officer (IO) be dragged in his individual capacity into the court and sought for his termination. It must be kept in mind by the victims not to solely rely on the public prosecutor for incriminating the offenders rather a good private advocate must also be hired.
