Proving their consistency throughout, India concludes their tour with Sri Lanka on a high. The lone T-20 match that both the teams played saw India thrashing the Lankans ruthlessly by 7 wickets. Sri Lanka had set up a competitive score of 170-7 after losing the toss to India and batting first. However, they proved to be no match for the ‘Men in Blue’ who powered through the total with ease. Captain Virat Kohli scored a magnificent 82 while Manish Pandey kept company by making 52 runs. The two partnered 119 runs after losing both the openers quite early in the match.
An enquiry report submitted by Uttar Pradesh Veterinary Department has revealed that the meat recovered from fifty-two year old Mohammad Akhlaq’s house was goat meat and not beef. Akhlaq, a resident of Bishahra village in Dadri was brutally murdered by a mob on account of him and his family eating beef, in September.
“Prima facie it seems that meat found in Dadri lynching victim’s house belongs to goat progeny. For final diagnosis and confirmation samples have been taken and sent to the forensic laboratory in Mathura,” read out the report submitted by the Veterinary Department, reported The Hindu.
Mohammad’s eldest son, Sartaj Akhlaq, who works for the Indian Air Force said that his father was a victim of mass hysteria and requested the people of the country to not inflict this upon anybody else. A charegesheet was filed against 15 people earlier this week, including the nephew the son and nephew of a local Bharatiya Janata Party leader Sanjay Rana for their alleged involvement in the lynching.
