Lynching Jihad : Hindu man beaten to death after his bike hits a woman

In Rajasthan’s Alwar district, a Dalit man named Harish Jatav died on Thursday after battling for his life for two days. Harish was allegedly beaten mercilessly by a mob after his bike hurt a woman in the Fasla village on Tuesday.

As per reports, Harish Jatav from Jhinvana village was passing through the market in Fasla village under Chopanki police station when a woman named Hakiman was hit by his bike.

As per reports, both Harish and Hakiman were found on the Bhiwadi-Chopanki road. While Hakiman was taken to the hospital by her family members, Harish was taken to hospital in a critical condition by the police. He was bleeding profusely. Angry locals had reportedly thrashed Harish severely after the accident.

Harish Jatav was first taken to the nearby hospital in Tapukara area. As his condition deteriorated, he was shifted to Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital. Harish finally died two days later on Thursday. His body was handed over to his family on Friday after postmortem.

Alwar SP Paris Deshmukh, however, has mentioned that there is no evidence to indicate that Harish was lynched by a mob.

The 28-year-old Harish was a truck driver by profession. He is survived by his wife, four daughters and a father who is blind.

Harish’s family have alleged that after his bike hit Hakiman, Harish was brutally beaten up by a man named Umar Sher and his associates. The family has lodged an FIR under sections 323, 343 and the relevant sections of the SC/ST (prevention of atrocities) Act.

Hakiman’s husband Jamaluddin has claimed that Harish was drunk and has lodged a complaint under section 279 over the incident. The police stated that investigation has been initiated and until after the detailed post-mortem report has been received they cannot say whether Harish’s death was due to mob-lynching.
