New Delhi: The All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) on Saturday demanded stringent laws against mob lynching and hate crimes after meeting the families of three cattle transporters who were allegedly lynched by a mob in Chhattisgarh last month. The AIKS said in a statement that its and All India Agricultural Workers Union (AIWU) delegations met the victims’ families on Friday. The statement alleged that the incident was a “premeditated murder”.

The delegation met the families of Tahseem Qureshi in Banat town of Uttar Pradesh and Chand Mian and Saddam Qureshi in Lakhnauti village and handed over cheques of Rs 1 lakh each to them. The three men were killed while driving cattle near the Mahanadi bridge on the Mahasamund-Raipur border in Chhattisgarh on June 7. “These well-planned murders took place just three days after the announcement of the Lok Sabha election results on June 4, which brought Narendra Modi and the BJP-National Democratic Alliance to power for the third time. Subsequently, similar attacks on Muslims were carried out by criminals of the (Rashtriya Swayamsevak) Sangh Parivar in several states,” the AIKS alleged.

The delegation included Rajya Sabha member and AIAWU treasurer V. Sivadasan, AIKS president Ashok Dhawale and general secretary Viju Krishnan, among others. The AIKS demanded from the Chhattisgarh government a compensation of Rs one crore to the family of each deceased and a permanent job to one kin of each victim.
