Alleged Gang of Eve Teasers Lynch Gujjar Muslim

A forty-two-year-old farmer Shabir Chuadhary was lynched by an alleged gang of eve teasers near his home in Phalian Mandal village in Satwari Police limits on the outskirts of Jammu city on Thursday evening 10 September 2020. The victim’s relatives allege that it was a pre-planned murder by the gang which belong to a “non-Muslim Community”. They accused a person named Mahesh of masterminding Shabir’s murder. Mahesh, they say, is a history-sheeter and has recently been to jail. He was accused of teasing and harassing women and girls from Gujjar Muslim community, a minority in Jammu, in his locality. The community had on several occasions raised complaints about his misbehaviour with elders from the majority Hindu community. Couple of weeks ago, he was caught by people and handed over to police. “He came out after spending six days in police custody,” said Naseeb Ali Chaudhary, who identified himself as a cousin of Shabir. According to him, Mahesh and his gang started threatening men from Muslim community. “They targeted Shabir because he had raised objections about Mahesh’s actions,” Naseeb alleged while talking to Clarion India on Sunday.
