Special\nInvestigation Team (SIT) has cited multiple lapses in the police probe into\nPehlu Khan lynching case and blamed officers for a \u201cshoddy\u201d investigation. The\nSIT was set up to look into reasons behind acquittal of six suspects in the\n2017 Pehlu Khan case. \n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=jirt9TEfDJA\n\n\n\n\nAccording to Hindustan Times, the SIT submitted 84-page report to the Rajasthan director general of police Bhupendra Singh on Wednesday.\n\n\n\nThe\nreport recommended \u201csuitable action\u201d after a probe against the erring\nofficials. Confirming the receipt of the report, Singh assured that the\ndepartment will examine all the recommendations.\n\n\n\nThe\nSIT report revealed that the officers committed 29 mistakes. Pointing loopholes\nby each of the four investigating officers, it stated that the first\ninvestigating officer visited the spot where Khan was allegedly assaulted only\nthree days after the crime, but failed to call the forensic team and didn\u2019t\norder mechanical examination of the two vehicles in which Khan was transporting\nthe cows.\n\n\n\nThe\nreport added that the second investigating officer overlooked the \u201cshoddy\u201d\ninvestigation and failed to \u201csupervise\u201d the investigation properly.\n\n\n\nRegarding\nthe third investigating officer, it stated, though he went to the crime spot,\nhe did not record the statements of the eyewitnesses nor he made any effort to\ncorrect mistakes in investigation by previous IOs [investigating officers].\n\n\n\nThe\nSIT concluded that the fourth investigating officer cleared six people named by\nKhan in his dying declaration without \u201cany new or solid evidence\u201d.\n\n\n\nThe\nSIT report said that the six accused, who were let off by the court on August\n14, should also have been charged with sections 395 (dacoity), 147 (rioting)\nand 148 (rioting, armed with deadly weapon), in addition to murder, voluntarily\ncausing hurt, wrongful restraint and damage to property.\n\n\n\nPehlu\nKhan was attacked by a mob on April 1, 2017, on the Delhi-Jaipur highway near\nBehror in Rajasthan\u2019s Alwar district while he was transporting cattle from a\nmarket in Jaipur to his home in Nuh, Haryana.
