Victim Mohd Azam, 32, is married and has a two-year-old son.
Hyderabad: In another gruesome and mindless act, an employee of Google here was lynched while three of his friends including a Qatar national were thrashed by a mob which suspected them to be child-kidnappers.
The incident took place at Kamalnagar in Bidar district of Karnataka.
The victim was identified as Mohd Azam, 32, who is married and has a two-year-old son. He was an employee of Google in Gachibowli and was a resident of Errakunta on the outskirts of Hyderabad.
Instead of weeping, Karnataka Chief Minister Kumraswamy should immediately get the police to arrest the perpetrators of the heinous crime. A life has been lost, a wife lost his man and a kid does not know why his father was lynched.
Azam and his friends including the Qatar national Mohd Salaam Eid Al Kubaisi of Royalwadi in Barkas, Noor Mohammed and Salman had gone to Murki village in Bidar to attend a function at a friend’s place. The group was travelling in a car and stopped near a government school for a break.
“Salaam had brought chocolates from Qatar and offered them to some children who were coming out of the school. Villagers who saw this tried to catch them but the group noticed them and tried to flee. They were stopped by a mob at another village who assaulted them,” Mohd Aslam, Azam’s younger brother was quoted in Deccan Chronicle.
The family members of Mohd Azam demanded that the state government intervene and take up their case with the Karnataka government.
“We demand justice and all the culprits responsible for the incident should be booked,” a family member said. Azam was married about three years ago and has a two-year-old son. The family is in a state of shock. Azam’s body was brought from Bidar on Saturday afternoon and the burial took place in the evening.
“He went to attend a function at the house of one of his friends, Basheer Khan, who lives in Bidar. All of them had hired a car and left at around 10 am for Bidar,” said Osman, Azam’s father.
