Lucknow, May 31: Adding a fresh twist to the lynching case of Akhlaq Ahmed in Dadri, the new forensic report issued by Mathura lab claims that the meat which was seized by security forces from the deceased’s home on the eve of his death is ‘beef’. This contradicts an earlier medical report which claimed that it was goat meat which was found at Ikhlaq’s home.Also Read - Cadbury Clarifies on Viral Tweet Claiming Its Products Contain Beef
The report not only has described the meat as ‘beef’, but specifically mentions that it belonged to either cow or it’s progeny. If Akhlaq’s family had consumed cow meat, they had violated the law of the state which prevents the slaughter of cow for consumption or any other purpose, since the bovine animal is considered sacred by Hindus.

However, Akhlaq’s brother has rejected the findings of the report, accusing a conspiracy. “They are insulting my brother by releasing contradicting reports. If this report is to be believed correct, then was the previous report false? The earlier report clearly mentioned that it was not beef,” he said while speaking to NDTV.
