MUMBAI: In a key development in the Palghar lynching case, the Maharashtra Police’s CID on Wednesday filed two separate chargesheets totalling around 12,000 pages, naming over 250-plus accused, an official said. The chargesheets say the mob lynching incident was the outcome of rumour-mongering and there was no religious angle to the crime.
They signify the end of the investigations into the case in which two sadhus and their driver were lynched near Gadchinchale village. “Chargesheets have been filed before the Palghar sessions court. Each runs into some 6,000-pages and have named 126 accused each,” special public prosecutor Satish Maneshinde said. Police sources said the probe will continue into other related aspects of the crime.
