He was stopped by a group of people near Bajartand village before being brutally killed.

“It’s premeditated murder,” Additional Director General of Police R.K. Mallik told IANS. “Asgar was chargesheeted for child abduction and murder,” the officer said, adding that some people involved in beef trade hatched a conspiracy to kill him. “The killers have been identified.”

Addressing a public meeting in Ahmedabad to mark the centenary of Mahatma Gandhi’s Sabarmati ashram, Modi had said killing people on the pretext of protecting cows is not acceptable and warned that no one has the right to take law into his hands.

    Our Prime Minister is more interested in photo sessions with heads of states around the world. He cannot be bothered about lynchings of meat traders and suicides of farmers. These are petty matters which do not deserve his attention. The tragedy with Indian republic is that we are saddled with leaders who are more interested in their images and the common man is at the receiving end all the time.

      The real facts are that the larger Hindu population is democratic, secular, and inclusive. All these staged protests, riots, and the anti-national activities against the BJP by the communal parties like the congress/communists and their supporters like Muslims/Christian would not hold water because the larger Hindu population has the ultimate say in the future of the country. The recent sweep by the BJP in UP is a good example wherein the congress, the communists played the Dalit/Muslim card and lost big. The congress party and the incompetent dynastic rule will see the sunset in the coming elections. Are the staged church attacks next ???????????????????
