GREATER NOIDA: The families of the men accused of Mohd Ikhlaq for allegedly slaughtering a cow have moved a court seeking registration of a case against his family members.

The move comes after a forensic report by a Mathura laboratory said that the meat recovered from Ikhlaq’s house was of a cow or its progeny. Ikhlaq was lynched and his son Danish was brutally beaten up by a mob on September 28 following rumours of cow slaughter.

Recently, the family of the accused had met police officials with a complaint and demanded registration of an FIR after the forensic report came to light.

“On October 8, 2015 we had sent the copy of letter to senior superintendent of police, deputy inspector general and other officials, requesting to lodge an FIR against Ikhlaq’s family for cow slaughter. Now, we have moved the application before a judicial magistrate for issuing orders to police to lodge an FIR,” said advocate BR Sharma.
