A local meat seller from Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh, was brutally thrashed by the police on alleged suspicion of cow slaughter. He was transferred from a local hospital to AIIMS Delhi where he breathed his last on Friday.

How events unfolded

The UP Police arrested the deceased, identified as Salim Qureshi alias Munna, on June 14. Later, he was taken to a private wedding hall by two police constables where he was beaten up.

Qureshi’s wife Farzana alleged that the post-in-charge Ali Mian Zaidi summoned him at the behest of local corporators husband Anjum Khan on charges of slaughtering and selling cow meat which is banned in the state, reports NDTV.

Legal Action

In her complaint, she has named Kankartala police post-in-charge Ali Mian Zaidi, along with Shripal and Harishankar as the accused. The trio has been placed under suspension, said Senior Superintendent of Police Kamlesh Bahadur. Also, an FIR has been filed against the two constables and Anjum Khan.

Even though Qureshi’s body has been brought back from AIIMS to Bareilly, the residents have refused to bury him before the administration can give assurance that justice will be delivered.

The Logical Indian take

It is the responsibility of the police to protect all citizens of the country irrespective of their religious beliefs and their food habits. Stricter laws should assure that such incidents are given a deserved punishment so that it can set an example for the future.
