Union minister Sanjeev Baliyan today insisted on a probe by either Uttar Pradesh government or the court concerned to find out who consumed meat at the house of Mohammad Akhlaq, who was lynched by a mob in Dadri’s Bishada village.

The Union Minister of State for Agriculture had demanded the inquiry after a forensic report said the meat sample collected from outside Akhlaq’s house belonged to a “cow or its progeny”.

“I said there should be an investigation, as the report is before the court. So it may be by the government or the court,” Baliyan told a press conference here.

He sought a probe on all those who consumed meat at the residence of 50-year-old Akhlaq, who was lynched by the mob last September for allegedly consuming beef.

Asked whether more people should be investigated if found that many others had consumed beef there, Baliyan said “It is the job of the police, I can only demand a probe. The report has already come before I demanded the probe.”
