In a shocking incident the car carrying the witnesses in Pehlu Khan lynching case, including the son of Khan, was fired at by some unknown persons who were riding in another car, while the group was on its way to depose.
Irshad, one of the son’s of Khan told The Indian Express, “The vehicle came near and the men inside waved their hands, asking us to stop. We might have even stopped, but we didn’t as their vehicle did not have a number plate. Then their vehicle came nearer and the men started hurling abuses at us, telling us to stop at once. Then they overtook us and fired upon us.”
The witnesses have demanded that the case be transferred from Behror to Alwar. However, Alwar SP Rajendra Singh has said that they haven’t been informed of the matter.
