Villagers Drape Dead Body Of Accused In Akhlaq Lynching Case With Tricolour

Published on 7 October, 2016 at 2:37 pm By

The body of Ravi Sisodia, one of the accused in the Dadri lynching case, was draped with the tricolor on September 6. The body was kept for public display at village Bishara by the locals who allege that he died because of police torture.

Villagers say that Ravi is a ‘martyr’. Ravi’s family and locals claim that he died of police brutality.

That the body of an accused has been draped in tricolor has not gone down well with many. Some took to Twitter to condemn the action of the villagers.

 




The 22-year-old Ravi died on October 4. He complained of severe pain in his stomach while in prison when he was taken to the Noida district hospital. He was then moved to Delhi’s LNJP hospital.

Doctors at the LNJP hospital, where he was being treated, said he died of respiratory problems and kidney failure.

According to the police, Ravi complained of pain in his body and fever in the Noida prison where he was kept in custody. They say that he was suffering from chikungunya.

But the villagers dispute the police version. They claim that Ravi was tortured in the prison which resulted in his death.

Hundreds marched through the village with Ravi’s body today, which his father brought back from the hospital.

The locals burned effigies of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan.

As a result, a section of the villagers are worried for their safety. Though a heavy police force has been deployed in the village, tensions simmer underneath.

The locals demand that Ravi’s widow be given facilities like that of Akhlaq’s widow. Ravi was one of the 17 accused in the lynching of Mohammed Akhlaq over suspicion of him eating beef, which resulted in the death of the 51-year-old.
