Three of the swords that the mob was carrying to intimidate meat shop owners have also been seized.
According to police, the accused has been identified as Monu, alias Raj Kishore, who hails from Uttar Pradesh’s Allahabad and was living on rent in Sirhaul village in Gurgaon.

We have also seized three of the swords that the men were carrying with them during the incident,” said Sumer Singh, DCP (West).
