Raza claims that the mob looted him and raised anti-Muslim slurs while beating mercilessly.
“After the incident, I left the village owing to fear of attack and migrated to Indore where my elder son is working for a private company.”
The accused followed Meghwal to Suratgarh, in neighbouring Ganganagar district, where he had gone on an errand, and abducted him on his way back. They allegedly beat him to death.
The site is among a list of 37 sites that was negotiated by district administration after consultations with members of both communities in 2018.
