On February 16, Junaid, along with another Muslim man Nasir, were allegedly attacked and abducted by a mob that later set them ablaze, alive while they were inside their car. This is said to have happened after accusations of cow smuggling were made against the victims.
The case has taken a new turn after the Rajasthan police filed a first information report against 21 persons, including Monu Manesar, a member of the Bajrang Dal.
Bharatpur SP Shyam Singh said that the accused tampered with evidence, provided financial assistance and shelter to the absconding suspects.
