Three days after a huge mob of villagers lynched three persons near a village in Palghar during lockdown, the Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party demanded a high-level probe into the incident. Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis said that after viewing the visuals that have come out, “the Palghar inident of mob lynching is shocking and inhuman”. “It is more disturbing especially when we are going through such tough times,” he said, referring to the lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The victims included two sadhus of the Juna Akhada who were killed besides their vehicle driver, while at least two police vans were damaged and some policemen were injured. The incident happened late on Thursday, but came to light early Friday morning after the driver alerted the police which rushed there. “I urged the Maharashtra government to immediately set up a high-level enquiry and ensure that people who are responsible for this are brought to justice at the earliest,” Fadnavis said today.
