A spontaneous mobs is not usually selective in their attack,in this case Akhlaq’s brothers’ house right next to his and was not even touched; in all likelihood the crime was not the result of a spontaneous mob fury. The crime was the result of a criminal conspiracy, known to a few people, but who were very sure that the people at large will not oppose them.

Media has reported the existence of Hindutva organizations active in the area in the name of ‘cow protection’. Their role in the crime should be investigated.
