Uttar Pradesh: 15-year-old killed, brother says were called beef eaters

Post by Rashmun on Fri Jun 23, 2017 11:24 pm

When 15-year-old Junaid Khan left home in Ballabhgarh on Thursday morning, he thought he’ll return with a new set of kurta-pyjama, a pair of shoes and some khushboo. Little did he know that the journey to Delhi, for Eid shopping, would cost him his life.

On his way home in a Mathura-bound train, with his elder brother Hashim and two friends, Junaid was stabbed to death, allegedly by “a group of 10-12 men between 7-8 pm”. His brothers Hashim and Shaqir, who boarded the train later, also sustained stab wounds.

Speaking to The Indian Express, 23-year-old Shaqir, admitted to the AIIMS Trauma Centre in Delhi, alleged that the accused started taunting Junaid and the others over their clothing, and also made references to “beef eating”.

“They flung our skull caps, pulled my brother’s beard, slapped us, and taunted us about eating cow meat. Beef is not even cooked in our village. Once we reached Ballabhgarh, they took out knives. They were older than us — probably in their 30s — so we couldn’t do anything,” recalled Shaqir, tears rolling down his cheeks. He said the men started stabbing Junaid, Hashim and him.

Shaqir, who works as a driver, suffered five stab wounds, including one on his chest. While the family, including Hashim, is in Ballabhgarh, his elder brother Ismail is in the hospital with him.
“Hashim told me the men threw them off the train at Asaoti station. Some people there called an ambulance and they were then taken to a hospital in Palwal,” said Ismail.
