New Delhi, Oct. 6 : The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha (RSS) has said that it should not be dragged into the Dadri lynching case and added that the people responsible for the crime should be punished.
In an interview to an English daily, RSS’s All India Prachar Pramukh Manmohan Vaidya said that the incident could have happened because of fringe elements. He said it is an isolated incident and should be seen in isolation.
Vaidya said one should wait till a proper inquiry is conducted instead of levelling allegations.
Vaidya’s remarks came on the backdrop of allegations by some quarters that the RSS was behind the incident.
50-year-old Akhlaq was lynched by a mob for allegedly storing beef at his residence in Dadri, Uttar Pradesh, last week. (ANI)
