The victim, identified as Yogesh Kumar, was found dead under mysterious circumstances near New Delhi Railway Station last month. Multiple injury marks were found all over his face and the body indicated that he was battered to death, doctors said. According to his mother, he was held hostage and lynched.
India Today (h/t Aryan V) Recalling the horrifying incident she said, “On June 23, Yogesh left home after he got a call from his friend Arif. He, along with other friends, including a girl Fatima, first kidnapped my son, later demanding Rs 10,000 from me. I was told that if money was not given on time, they will kill my son.”
“The very next morning, I was told that my son was killed and thrown somewhere along the railway track near New Delhi station,” she said. Yogesh’s family lives in Shahadra’s Meet Nagar. Despite being very young, he had been working to earn money for his mother’s medical treatment.
Doctors said, “The body was hit brutally and had severe injuries on face, skull and back. It seemed the deceased was beaten up repeatedly with some objects like stone or a bottle. It’s possible that he was also lynched. An FIR was lodged in the case the next day which stated that the body was lying in a pool of blood. Broken pieces of glass bottles, a stone and few bricks were also reportedly found with traces of blood on it.
However, police remain tight-lipped over the cause of death considering it a communally sensitive matter. (As in we don’t want to upset the Muslims?)
No matter what country Muslims are in, they continuously make trouble for the non-Muslims.
