Ramgarh lynching: 1 held

 One of the 13 people accused of lynching a man in Jharkhand on Thursday has been arrested.

Chief Minister Raghubar Das on Friday directed the police to nab the culprits of two such recent killings, so that they can be punished through fast-track courts.
In Ramgarh, where the incident took place on Thursday, authorities have imposed prohibitory orders barring the assembly of four or more people, amid the tension in the district, officials said.

One person has been arrested and the police are conducting raids to nab the other accused named in the FIR, said Inspector General of Police M L Meena, who visited Ramgarh and held meetings with senior police and administrative officials.

The state government announced a compensation of Rs 2 lakh for the dependents of the deceased.

In New Delhi, Union Information and Broadcasting Minister M Venkaiah Naidu denounced the lynching incidents and other kinds of violence as “condemnable and barbaric” and appealed against giving a political or communal angle to such cases.
A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke strongly against murders in the name of cow protection, Naidu said no civilised society can accept such incidents and that it was for the law enforcement agencies of the respective states to take the strongest possible action.

The Jharkhand chief minister, while reviewing the law and order situation in the state, told the police that the guilty should not go scot-free, whoever they might be, and that such incidents should be prevented.
