LOK SABHA SET TO EXPLODE TODAY
On Camera Now: "I lynched, I killed this Muslim in Hapur. I will kill more. I am a hero."
- PT BUREAU
On Camera Now:



TWO HOURS AWAY from Delhi, they admit they lynched a Muslim to death. Now, they say their army of gau rakshaks is ready to kill more Muslims, but they will make sure that this time no video goes viral.

It is all on camera now. And Lok Sabha will hear the echo on Tuesday. Lynchings are back in the discourse, perhaps even more firmly now as India inches closer to elections in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhatisgarh, and then 2019.
 
"Last time we assaulted and lynched a Muslim to death, we faced this hassle of police action because some over-enthusiastic kid made a video of the beating and killing and it went viral. In future, whenever we do something similar, I will ensure that no one makes any video. We will leave the mobiles at home."

His only regret is about the video: "Mana karte karte bachhe nahi maante uss time par."

The Lok Sabha is all set to explode on Tuesday over the issue of lynchings, thanks to an explosive undercover sting operation by the NDTV that showed self-styled gau rakshak men not only owning up their role in assaulting and killing Muslims, but proudly proclaiming it. 
----------
I told the jailer immediately upon my arrival in the jail that I have committed a full murder and a half murder. – Alleged killer on camera after he was released on bail.
----------
More shockingly, the prime suspect in a brutal killing in Hapur said he openly told the jailer immediately upon his arrival in the jail that he has committed "a full murder and a half murder."

He said he will carry out similar operations in the future too against any Muslim he suspected of slaughtering cows but he will take care that videos of such beatings and murders do not go viral.

"Pehla case huya hai aisa video banaane ka. Ab nahi banayenge. Mobile bhee ghar daal kar jayenge koyee kaam hoga agar aisa."

Qasim Qureshi was a meat trader. Samiuddin was a farmer. On June 18, both were lynched by a mob in Hapur, western UP. Qureshi died as a result. Samiuddin suffered serious injuries. In the words of Rakesh Sisodia, it was "one full murder, one half murder."

Nine people were arrested. Four of them are now out on bail. Among them is Rakesh Sisodia.

He told the judge in writing that he had no role in the attack and wasn't present at the spot. When the NDTV reporter, posing as a research scholar from the United States doing field research on RSS and Hindutva outfits, caught up with Rakesh Sisodia, he narrated in detail what he had done. 

Then, he also said he has firm plans to carry out more such killings. "Meri fauj tayaar hai...katwa denge khade-khade...Hazaar baar jail jaana pade, jaayenge." (My army is ready.... If anyone slaughters a cow, we will kill them and go to jail a thousand times.)"

Caught on hidden camera in his village Bajedha Khurd in Hapur, he said the police was in their favour, otherwise they would have languished in jail. Hapur is just two hours from Delhi. Sisodia was behind bars for just five-weeks. Now, he is preparing his army for future actions.

"I told the jailer that they (the victims) were slaughtering cows, so I slaughtered them," Sisodia told the reporter. He also narrated how people welcomed him with open arms when he was released on bail. 
----------
"Pehla case huya hai aisa video banaane ka. Ab nahi banayenge. Mobile bhee ghar daal kar jayenge koyee kaam hoga agar aisa."
----------
In the video that had gone viral, bystanders are heard saying that someone should give some water to Qasim who had been brutally thrashed. Listen to Gau Rakshak Rakesh Sisodia's account of what happened: "Maine kaha tujhe paani peene kaa haq nai hai, tune marti hui gaaye ko paani nai diya. Meri fauj tujhe choregi nahi."

The TV reporter also met one of the alleged assaulters/killers of dairy farmer Pehlu Khan who was lynched to death in April 2017 in Alwar. Meet Vipin Yadav in Alwar's Behror town. He, too, told the court he had no role in the killing. He is out on bail.

He, too, was caught on hidden camera, telling how they beat up Pehlu Khan for one and a half hour. He said it was he who had pulled out the keys of the truck and pulled out Pehlu Khan. "Maine zabardasti chaaabi nikal ke unko baahar nikaal liya...2 pickup ki chaabi mere paas hi thi, mere pocket me hi rah gai thi." (I had pulled him out of the truck. I had removed the keys and had forgotten that the keys were left in my pocket)."

Last month, in a poignant article in a national daily, social activist Harsh Mander, had described the Hapur killings thus: "The same frenzied gratuitous cruelty of the mob, the passivity of the bystander, the triumphant video-taping of the crime broadcast through the internet, the cynical silence of the country’s leadership, the cover-up by the police."

Now, there is videographic evidence of it all. 
----------
 "Aap ne kitna maara?” the reporter asked Vipin Yadav in Alwar. "Dedh ghante tak. Koyee ginti thodi hai.”
----------
Mander described in words that are difficult to read for a sane human being: "A group of men caught both Qasim and Samiuddin, dragged them to an enclosed compound and beat them ruthlessly. Later they hauled them out into the open fields.

"There a large crowd had gathered, many of them boys in their teens. Here they assaulted the two men with anything they could find — iron rods, sticks, knives, daggers, screw-drivers, even pens. Through all of this, they taunted and humiliated the two men."

The NDTV expose will be telecast in detail on Tuesday night, along with a lot of reactions from India's political class. It will be difficult to watch, because you are a sane human being and it hurts. But then, that's exactly the reason you do not have a choice.   

"Aap ne kitna maara?” the reporter asked Vipin Yadav in Alwar. "Dedh ghante tak. Koyee ginti thodi hai.” (We beat him for one and a half hour. Who was there to keep the count?)
Hope you will keep the count. 
 
Initial reactions:

Reporter Saurabh Shukla: It did not take much persuasion for me to make them open up. They were quite happy to talk about it when I told them I am also of the same ideology. 

 


Supreme Court advocate Vrinda Grover: The NDTV expose amounts to an extra-judicial confession and is admissible under the Evidence Act.
 


Vikram Singh, ex-DGP of UP: Collaborative collapse of investigation and policing...Those holding Constitutional posts are garlanding lynchmob members. It is giving signals to police on who to favour.
