‘He didn’t die on the spot’- says police for not filing murder charges against 11 involved in mob lynching

The Jharkhand Police have removed the murder charges against 11 people accused in mob lynching. On June 18, a mob caught TabrezAnsari. It has been alleged that he was attempting to steal a motorcycle. He was then tied to a pole and beaten for about 12 hours. Reports say that the mob forced Ansari to chant “Jai Shri Ram” and “Jai Hanuman”. Subsequently, Police produced Ansari in a court. After that, He was sent to Judicial remand. 

Days later, Ansari fell ill and was admitted to the hospital. The 24 years old died in the hospital. In the Post mortem report, the cause of death has been mentioned as cardiac arrest and the head injury was not fatal. The second medical opinion claimed that the cause of death was due to both cardiac arrest and head injury. However, police have dropped the murder charges against the 11 who were alleged for mob lynching of Ansari. But, they were charged under culpable homicide. 

Speaking of this, Saraikela-Kharsawan Superintendent of Police Karthik S stated that police have not filed murder charges and instead they have filed charges under culpable homicide. He reasoned that “One, he did not die at the spot…the villagers did not have any intent to kill Ansari..Second, the medical report did not substantiate the murder charge.” “The final postmortem report said Ansari died due to cardiac arrest and that hemorrhage in the head was not fatal,” he added. 

And, weeks after the incident, a civil rights group from Jharkand found some lapses in Ansari’s case. In that regard, Seraikela-Kharsawan district officials set up a 3-member investigation team. It was found that Police negligence and lapses on the part of doctors led to Ansari’s death. Also, the reports stated that neither police nor the doctors respond in time.
