Allahabad: Retired cop, Abdul Samad Khan, beaten to death by his neighbour Yousuf

In a shocking incident which occurred in Allahabad in the Shivkuti police station area, three men have brutally assaulted a 70-year-old retired policeman Abdul Samad Khan in broad daylight.

Khan was reportedly attacked when he was on his way to buy groceries on Monday, 3rd September. After the attack, the police took him to hospital but the former sub-inspector later succumbed to the injuries inflicted during the brutal lynching.

The retired sub-inspector was attacked by three assailants. One of the assailants was the Khan’s neighbour Yousuf, and others were reportedly called Ibnu and Sheru. The CCTV footage shows the retired cop, Abdul Samad Khan, trying to shield himself as the three of the accused hit him with sticks. Khan, at last, gives up and is left bleeding on the street.

Brijesh Kumar Srivastava, the Superintendent of Police said “According to the investigation so far, these people had some property dispute related to a house and had argued before. The incident was of Monday morning when Khan was going on his bicycle and was attacked by Mohammad Yusuf, his brother Mohammad Sebu and relative Ibne. He was beaten badly with canes and was left on the streets. He was then taken to a nearby private hospital where he died on the evening.”

Shockingly, the barbaric incident took place in front of many people, but no people came to rescue the retired cop. It is reported that the bystanders ran away into their buildings, as soon the attack on the retired cop occurred.

The Allahabad High Court has taken suo-moto cognizance of the attack and has asked the Uttar Pradesh government to provide information on the action taken with matter to this case by tomorrow.
