A 29-year-old man who was allegedly beaten up by gau rakshaks or cow vigilantes in Ahmedabad four days ago died of his injuries at a hospital in Ahmedabad on Friday.

Mohammad Ayyub was allegedly attacked by a group of cow vigilantes on Tuesday while he and another man Sameer Sheikh were transporting a cow and a calf, police said.

Pratik Sinha, a human rights activist from Gujarat narrated the events that led to Ayyub’s death in a Facebook post

“At 5 p.m. this evening, 29 year old Mohd Ayyub died due to injuries in VS Hospital in Ahmedabad. Mohd Ayyub and Sameer Sheikh were travelling in an Innova towards Ahmedabad with two calfs on the 13th September when Gau Rakshaks chased them, rammed into their car near Honest T-junction near Karnavati club in Ahmedabad, pulled them out of the car and beat them up. This incident happened at around 3 a.m. on 13th September. According to Sameer Sheikh’s police complaint, Mohd Ayyub tried to flee from the Gau Rakshaks but the Gau Rakshaks chased him and beat him up with sticks and rods. Sameer Sheikh was also beaten up and suffered injuries on his head. The police took Sameer Sheikh in custody but by the time they could reach Mohd Ayyub, he had already suffered many injuries. The ambulance was called and Mohd Ayyub was admitted to civil hospital while Sameer Sheikh was taken to Anandnagar Police Station. For some unknown reasons, Mohd Ayyub was transferred from Civil Hospital in Ahmedabad to VS Hospital where he passed away this evening at 5 p.m (16/09/2016).

The police had registered two FIRs, the first against Sameer Sheikh and Mohd Ayyub under Cow Protection act and the other against cow vigilantes under Section 307 i.e. Attempt to murder. However, while the police named the cow vigilantes in the first FIR against Sameer Sheikh and Mohd Ayyub and also noted down the vehicle numbers, in the second FIR under Section 307, the attackers have been termed as ‘unknown’. The vehicle numbers are GJ27 C9077 and GJ01 CZ 1180 and the names of the cow vigilantes in the first FIR are Janak Ramesh Mistry, Ajay Sagar Rabari and Bharat Nagj Rabari. The police has skipped the names in the second FIR to weaken the case. “

Ayyub’s family refused to accept his body from the police.

Akhtar Shekhani, elder brother of Mohd Ayyub, states that he will not accept the dead body of his family till the time the police inspector concerned is not suspended and the assailants are not arrested.

    Despite appeals and rallies of dalits and Muslim unity in Gujarat, the state rulers and their police are not prepared to protect minorities and dalits. The chasing and killing of a Muslim member by vigilantes is another failure of government in its long list of failures. Even FIRs are not being registered with full information. The partisan behaviour of administrative services is pretty evident. Ruling BJP fanatics are continuing their regressive measures. The incident is highly deplorable and regrettable to the highest extent .
