No place for Mandsaur rape accused in community graveyards: Muslim leaders
INDORE: A day after the seven-year-old girl was brutally raped in Mandsaur,
on Thursday disowned the accused and said his body will not be allowed to be buried in any of the community burial grounds in the district.
“There is no place for such demon in the community. He should be hanged for his actions,”
told reporters, after leading a delegation to submit a memorandum to Mandsaur SP Manoj Singh.
Various Muslim organisations demanded a death sentence to the accused,
alias Bhaiyyu through a speedy trial in a fast track court.
“Irfan’s crime can’t be pardoned. We have decided that we will not allow his body to be buried in any of the community burial grounds in the district,” Sheikh said.
The Muslim leaders claimed that Irfan will not be offered
upon his death – Namaz-e-Janaja – and will be boycotted.
The move by Muslim leaders came close to the heels of Mandsaur lawyers deciding to refrain from representing Irfan in the court. The Mandsaur Bar Association took the decision to boycott Irfan and said that an army of 100 lawyers will appear on behalf of the victimized girl.
The girl was found brutally raped and with her throat slit in a secluded area in Mandsaur on Wednesday, a day after she went missing from the school. Police had arrested Irfan on basis of the CCTV grabs showing him escorting the girl away from the school.
