New Delhi: A four-member delegation of Popular Front of India (PFI) visited Madrasa Jamia Rahmania Tajwidul Qur’an in Delhi’s Prem Nagar area. The madrasa was in news during the Eid-ul Adha as some of its workers were attacked by self styled Gau Rakhshaks or cow vigilantes as they were taking the leftovers of the sacrificial animals for disposal.
Two employees of the said madrasa in Delhi were beaten mercilessly by around two dozen people who came in several cars, surrounded the duo and beat them with iron rods in front of the institution. Both of them were first admitted to a private hospital in New Delhi and were later shifted to LNJP Hospital on the insistence of police officials.
It is reported that the two victims were on their way to dump discarded remains of animals sacrificed on the day of Eid-al-Azha or Bakrid. One of the men is the teacher of a madrassa, and the other is a van driver. Taking prompt action against the self-styled cow rakhshaks, delhi Police arrested four people in the case. Police have charged them under section 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide) of the Indian Penal Code, at the Kanjhwala station. While talking to a leading newspaper in the national capital, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Outer Delhi Vikramjit Singh said, “Four people have been arrested in the matter. They belong to Rani Khera and Rasoolpur, both villages located near the attack spot.”
