Delhi businessman lynched to death by Jehangir Khan and sons for protesting against harassment of his daughter, Hindu community enraged with the incident

This past Saturday, a Delhi based Businessman Dhruv Tyagi was stabbed outside his house in West Delhi on Sunday, when he protested his 27-year-old daughter’s harassment in hands of his neighbours belonging to the Muslim community.

As he protested, the neighbour family jumped on him, his son and daughter with lethal weapons. Mr. Tyagi was brutally assaulted. He succumbed to his injuries on Monday. Police have arrested the accused, Mohammad Alam, 20, and his father Jehangir Khan, 45, and two others. Apart from the four, Police have arrested the wife and daughter of Jehangir.

DCP (west) Monika Bhardwaj said the two women were arrested after allegations of their involvement were corroborated by many eyewitnesses. A probe has revealed that Jehangir’s wife and daughter initially pelted stones at Tyagi from their balcony. Later, they came down with a cleaver and handed it to Jehangir.

When Tyagi’s daughter went to save her father and brother, the two women attacked her as well. In order to save herself and her family members, Jehangir’s wife called the PCR falsely accusing Tyagi and his family members of attacking her daughter.

Meanwhile Hindu community of the area held protests against the murder. A Mahapanchayat (community meeting) was also called wherein it was decided that no more people belonging to Muslims would be given houses on rent in the area.
