SIT to probe CIA negligence in death of two Muslim men killed by Bajrang Dal members

The remains of burnt vehicle as two Muslim men were charred to death by Bajrang Dal members in Haryana on February 16, 2023.

Bhiwani: The Haryana police have formed an SIT to probe allegations of negligence against its Crime Investigation Agency (CIA) team of Ferozepur-Jhirka in connection with the Bhiwani incident where two Muslim men were charred to death by Hindu right-wing Bajrang Dal members, PTI reported.

On February 16, two Muslim men were charred to death in a car in Haryana’s Bhiwani district by Bajrang Dal members.

The Hindutva members allegedly kidnapped, lynched, and murdered the Muslim duo Junaid and Nasir at Bhiwani in Haryana on suspicion of their involvement in cow slaughter.

Family members of the deceased had alleged that Nasir and Junaid were killed after they were abducted by cow vigilantes.

They had also alleged that the CIA team in Nuh district had “colluded” with Bajrang Dal activists in lynching the two victims and then setting their bodies ablaze inside the vehicle.

Ismail, the brother of Junaid, had alleged that the victims were taken to a police station after being assaulted, but the police personnel in Nuh refused to take them into custody.

The report quoting Nuh Superintendent of Police Varun Singla, said the allegations as “baseless”.

“To probe the allegations against CIA, Ferozepur Jhirka, a special team has been formed led by ASP Usha Kundu,” he said.

He further said that they will also wait for the Rajasthan Police report to throw light on the CIA team’s role. “If our men are found involved, action will be taken,” the SP told the news agency.
