In the Tabrez Ansari mob lynching case, Jharkhand Police recently dropped murder charges against 11 accused in the case.
The police argue that according to the postmortem report, a case of murder is not made because 22-year-old  Tabrez Ansari died due to heart attack and not because of head injury.  On the other hand, an analysis of the chargesheet, case diaries and statements of witnesses rebut police version.  Witness to Atrocities  According to the statement of Mohammad Masroor Alam, relative of Tabrez Ansari, he rushed to the spot on June 18, 6:30 AM as soon as he got information about the incident. Alam saw Tabrez was tied up to a poll by the angry villagers. “There a man in the crowd shouting- ‘Itna maaro ki mar jaaye’  (beat him so much that he dies)’.” Also Read Tabrez case: Police negligence, doctor’s lapses led to the death According to a report by the  Indian Express , another key statement comes from Tinku Mandal, the man who shot video clips of the attack and confirmed its contents to police. He later erased the clips due to fear.
“I heard people shouting in the early hours of June 18. I saw that one person was tied to an electricity pole and people were abusing him. He was being beaten with sticks, but some were also asking others not to beat him. Ansari had a phone and was calling someone on it. Villagers asked him to call his two friends (whom they claimed were involved in an alleged theft bid and had escaped),” Mandal told police.
