Deepak Mishra and Chhotu Verma, two of the main accused and top functionaries of the local Gau Raksha Samiti, on Monday surrendered before the a city court in Ramgarh district in connection with the lynching of Alimuddin Ansari, who was killed for allegedly carrying beef in his van, on June 29.

Ramgarh Superintendent of Police Kishore Kaushal said: “The two main accused surrendered early noon. We had procured their arrest warrants and would have initiated property attachment proceedings if they had not surrendered today.”

With this, the total number of arrests has reached 10, with five named and five others, who were not named in the FIR, having been arrested so far. More arrests are likely.

Police officials said that, while Mishra and Verma were not seen in pictures or videos using sticks to beat up Ansari, they had a prominent role to play in the entire incident. “Many people, who were found at the spot and indulging in perpetrating violence, had reached the spot at their instance,” said an official. Associated with cow protectionism since long, Mishra and Verma were virtually synonymous with such activities in the area.

The police said that, around half a dozen persons, who were not named in the FIR, but whose involvement in the mob violence was suspected, had been detained for questioning.

Meanwhile, the home department came out with an appeal in the local dailies urging people not to take law into their hands in the name of cow protection, while reminding that killing cows was illegal in the state.

      I was reading satyavijayi on so many hindu BJP workers and some even officials tortured and killed just while doing their duties by islamic fundamentals and CPM goons, and there is hardly any of this in the main news and absolutely no outrage. This shows liberal islamist media is highly biased and their only aim is to tarnish Hindus in International media. Ofourse, I oppose these horrible lynchings by so called gaurakshaks, but at the same time we need a unbiased report on all killings including that of Hindus and same kind of outrage.

        No one has the right to take law in their own hands under any circumstance.

          Lynchers deserve to be Lynched or shot by Firing Squads like China if Government want to maintain law and order without any bias.

            There were 100 Cow Terrorists in Total then why only 10 arrests. A policeman was seen beating the Lynching victim with police Baton is not yet arrested. Country's image is tarnished Internationally and whole world media is cursing RSS, Gau Rakshaks, Bajrang Dal, ABVP, BJP, VHP for bringing bad name similar to ISIS for the Nation.

              Gau rakshaks terrorists knows that their masters in bjp will save them by tweaking the FIR and they just walk out without any problems after getting the Bail. Then after few years case will be dismissed for want of evidence or witness! Violent lynchings will only increase in India until people realize that they have voted for snakes and need corrective action!
