“Ravindra Singh, Gaurav’s father, had lodged an FIR for murder at Jansath police station against Muzammil, Mujasim, Furqaan, Jehangeer, Nadeem and Shahnawaz. Shahnawaz was killed later in retaliation to the murder of Gaurav and Sachin,” Anil Zindal, the lawyer for the complainant was quoted by Indian Express.

The names of two other accused of Iqbal and Afzal were added later.

A counter FIR was also lodged by the father of Shahnawaz incriminating Sachin and Gaurav for killing his son. But, an SIT in 2015 had given a clean chit to 5 accused in the case, while two other accused Gaurav and Sachin were already dead.

The quantum of sentence for the convicted will be announced on February 8. Gaurav’s father has expressed hope that convicted people will get the maximum amount of sentence, as he has been fighting for justice for his son for a long time now. While Gaurav’s mother wants death sentence for the convicted.

“I have faith in court. We hope justice will be done. Once we get a copy of the sessions court verdict, we will move to high court.” Father of two convicted Muzassim and Muzammil said. He also accused local police of doing investigation unfairly hiding the truth.

Over 6,000 cases were lodged following the 2013 riots and 1,480 accused were arrested for their alleged roles in the riots. A SIT had filed charge sheets in 175 cases.
