Gurgaon Family Attacked By Mob on Holi Threatens to Commit Mass Suicide Over Police Inaction

"We are the victims of the incident but Gurgaon Police has registered an FIR against two men of our family in a bid to pressure us"

Gurgaon: A family, who was attacked by a mob here, threatened of mass suicide on Monday, alleging that it was being pressured to withdraw the FIR and police were not taking action under “influence” of local politicians.

A mob of over 40 persons pelted stones at the house of Mhd Akhtar in Bhup Singh Nagar area here and beat up members of his family, in an attack triggered by a game of cricket on Holi. The attack was captured on a cellphone by one of the victims and the video had gone viral on internet. The clip showed women of the family pleading for mercy while a man was being thrashed, police had said.

“The matter is now in public domain as the video of the assault went viral on internet. Still the police has failed to arrest over 35 goons. If the Gurgaon Police and the district administration do not help us, we have no option but to commit mass suicide,” Akhtar said.

The family also submitted a memorandum to sub-divisional magistrate of Sohna, urging speedy investigation in the case and said it would commit mass suicide if justice was not be delivered.
