Junaid Khan was lynched by a mob on board a Mathura-bound train in Haryana on June 22, 2017
NEW DELHI (PTI) — The Supreme Court on Monday sought the Centre’s response on a plea seeking a CBI probe into the Ballabhgarh mob lynching case in which 17-year-old Junaid Khan was stabbed to death on a train in June last year.
A bench of Justice Kurian Joseph and Justice MM Shantanagoudar also stayed the trial in the case till further orders.
Junaid’s father Jalaluddin has challenged the Punjab and Haryana High Court’s 27 November last year order, refusing a CBI probe into the matter, and sought that the accused be booked under offences of hate crimes.
