Dadri, Oct.4 (ANI): The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) on Sunday extended a financial assistance of Rs.11 lakh and 21 thousand to family members of Mohammad Akhlaq, who was beaten to death in Dadri’s Bishada village over rumours that he had stored beef at his residence.
“There has been no law and order in the state from the day the Samajwadi Party came to power. These types of incidents are common in the state,” senior BSP leader and former Minister Naseemuddin Siddiqui told ANI.
“We have given a financial assistance of Rs.11,21,000 to the victim’s family,” he added.
Two main accused in the lynching case, Shivam and Vishal, were arrested on Saturday, raising the total number of accused in the case to eight.
