Can't believe a chargesheet has been filed against #PehluKhan. Have reported and followed the story from Day 1 and visited his home in Nuh ovr 5 times. Tough to believe he was a smuggler of cows. He even had receipt of cows he purchased from the cattle fair for dairy farming! 1/N
He, along with his son and others, was gheraoed and lynched in Alwar while returning back from the cattle fair. Visited his home many times and always found that the family sustained on dairy farming business. Infact after the incident they were scared to continue with it. 2/N
Over the last few months, the family has run from pillar to post to get justice but has been handed this chargesheet against the victim itself.

Remember Pehlu's widow telling me in Dec 2018 how she was hoping for a Congress govt to get justice. Govt came, justice didn't. N/N
