Pehlu Khan case: Police finds no evidence of firing on Pehlu Khan’s sons and witnesses

Two days after it was reported that Pehlu Khan’s sons and witnesses, who were on their way to testify in the Pehlu Khan lynching case in April last year, were shot at by unknown assailants, Alwar Police has said that they have found no evidence of firing on them. According to reports, Pehlu Khan’s sons and witnesses and lawyer were on their way to a court in Behror to depose in the lynching case when a black SUV without number plates had allegedly stopped them and opened fire at them when they refused to stop.

However, the police investigating the case have found no evidence in the claims. As reported by Patrika, the police examined the place at which the lawyer and witnesses claim the firing took place and obtained CCTV footage from a nearby hotel. At 9:04 am, the car in which witnesses were going can be seen passing by but half an hour before and after that no black SUV can be seen in the video. Further, the FSL report states that the place at which they claim their car pressed the brakes, no evidence of braking the car could be found there. Moreover, the driver of the car, Pehlu Khan’s sons, the driver and the witness were independently questioned and their statements video-recorded and all versions reportedly differ. Over and above, no one else could independently corroborate that the firing took place.

As reported by Bhaskar, Police believes that they claimed the firing took place to get the case transferred to either Tijara or Alwar and hence they may have made up the story. As per Rajendra Singh, Alwar SP, the police has examined the points mentioned by the witnesses and no concrete evidence of firing having taken place could be found. The CCTV cameras installed on the highway were also examined but no black SUV which reportedly fired at them could be seen.
