Pehlu Khan's family get threat

New Delhi, Sep 16: Slain Haryana dairy farmer Pehlu Khan's family on Friday said they fear for their life while attending the court case in Rajasthan and demanded transfer of the case outside the state. They alleged that they are getting death threats from those who were involved in Khan's lynching and the local political leaders associated with the state's ruling party BJP. While addressing a press conference, Irshad Khan, son of 55-year-old Pehlu Khan who was lynched by a mob of Gau Rakshaks in Alwar district of Rajasthan in April this year, said he and his family have lost faith in the Rajasthan police after it recently gave a clean chit to six main accused of the lynching. He said that his family has decided to appeal to the Supreme Court for a thorough probe into the 1st April incident under its watch. The six men were named by Khan senior in his dying statement before a police office at hospital bed.
