A twenty one year old Muslim man Waris, resident of Hussainpur village in Haryana’s Mewat district was killed by Hindutva group, Bajrang Dal, his family members and locals said on Saturday.
A video showing Bajrang Dal workers abusing and assaulting three Muslim men including Waris inside a car went viral soon after the incident.
“Cow vigilantes of Bajrang Dal were attacking these Muslim youth. You can see it in the video,” Sahid, a local, said to Bharat TV.
Monu Manesar who is infamous for “cow protection group” and targeted attacks on Muslims was behind the brutal murder of Waris, Sahid alleged.
Waris’s body was sent for postmortem examination on Saturday.
The station house officer (SHO) said to Bharat TV that Waris died after his car met an accident. “It’s fake allegation,” he said about Hindutva group’s role in Waris’s murder.
Following the incident, Waris’s family members and neighbours gathered outside the hosppital.
The incident occurred early hours of Saturday.
Waris is survived by his wife and a girl child.
