Forensic reports do not suggest meat was mutton: SSP
Quashing the rumors of forensic reports proving that the meat found in Iqlakh’s refrigerator in connection with his lynching was mutton, Kiran S, SSP Gautam Buddh Nagar, said that the police have not come across with any forensic report.
Kiran S also said that some media reports are saying that the forensic report has proved that the meat which was taken from Iqlakh’s fridge was mutton but as of now, no forensic report has come out and the police are investigating the case.
Through the forensic <g data-gr-id="31">tests</g> it is being attempted to recall the sequence of the crime and to recollect the <g data-gr-id="30">evidences</g> of what occurred on the night of September 28. Through the <g data-gr-id="29">reports</g> the police will reach a conclusion whether the lynching was pre-planned or it occurred due to a cow slaughter rumour.
“There are so many questions which are <g data-gr-id="27">unanswered</g> but the police are waiting for the forensic reports to <g data-gr-id="25"><g data-gr-id="18">be come</g> within a couple of days</g>. Further investigation will be based on the forensic reports only after that can we recall the sequence of the crime and can ascertain was it (the lynching) pre-planned or it occurred on account of rumours,” the SSP said.
On the night of September 28, police collected a sample of the meat from Iqlakh’s house in <g data-gr-id="22">Bisara</g> and sent it to a vet for preliminary testing. These tests suggested it was mutton initially, but the police sent the sample to another lab in Mathura for a conclusive test. However, the Mathura lab had turned it down initially as no FIR mentioning beef meat was lodged.
