The Quint

1. Six Men Accused in Pehlu Lynching Case Acquitted

An additional district judge's court here acquitted on Wednesday six men accused in the Pehlu Khan lynching case, giving them the benefit of the doubt as the police investigation had serious shortcomings. The Rajasthan government said it would appeal the verdict in the high court.

The supporters and relatives of the six people acquitted left the court premises chanting "Jai Shri Ram", "Bharat Mata Ki Jai" and "Vande Mataram". The slogan chanting had begun inside the courtroom as soon as ADJ Sarita Swami pronounced the acquittals of Vipin Yadav (19), Ravindra Kumar (29), Yogesh Kumar (30), Bheem Rathi (32), Kalu Ram (44) and Dayanand (44).
