New Delhi: Jamiat Ulama has braced itself to provide justice to Tabrez Ansari who was mob lynched in Jharkhand. On the direction of President Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind Maulana Arshad Madani, a writ petition was filed in Jharkhand High Court demanding immediate implementation of Supreme Court’s order and putting the errant police officers and doctors on trial. It also demanded compensation of 50 lakh to Ansari’s widow. The body sought hearing of the case in fast track court.
Tabrez Ansari died on June 22, after being beaten by a mob which forced him to chant “Jai Shri Ram” and “Jai Hanuman” in Jharkhand. His family was also allegedly threatened by police when it begged for him to be given treatment while he was bleeding profusely in custody.
