In a major breakthrough in Junaid Khan lynching, Haryana Police on Wednesday arrested four accused in connection with the murder.Â
One of the accused arrested is a 50-yr-old Delhi govt employee and the Police have leads on the person who attacked Junaid with a knife, said Kamal Deep, SP GRP Haryana.
The development came hours after Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu sought action against the perpetrators.
Naidu while interacting with reporters said, â€œAny incident of such nature is condemnable. It is brutal, atrocious. It will not be acceptable at all. People who are responsible for the same should be identified and dealt very firmly.â€
Earlier on Tuesday, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar condemning the brutal killing of a Muslim youth onboard a Mathura-bound train said the perpetrators would be brought to justice.
Khattar, who had invited criticism from various quarters for not condemning the shocking incident or expressing condolence, said, "I condemn the incident and appeal to people to maintain peace".
Junaid was stabbed to death while his brothers, Hashim and Sakir--were injured by a mob which also allegedly hurled slurs against them onboard the Delhi-Mathura passenger train between Ballabgarh and Mathura stations on Thursday night.
