Dalit law student lynched in restaurant brawl

Mob kills

Saroj was a second-year law student of the Allahabad Degree College and hailed from Pratapgarh.

In a shocking incident, a 26-year old law student, Dilip Saroj, was brutally beaten to death in Katra bazar area of Allahabad's Uttar Pradesh.

Amit Upadhyaya, the owner of the restaurant, appeared to suggest that the attackers had been called by the group which had an altercation with Dilip and his friends.

"As per the CCTV footage obtained from the restaurant, they attacked Saroj mercilessly in the restaurant".

The entire CCTV footage of the incident has now gone viral on social media. After the incident, the law student was admitted to the nearby hospital into the coma on Saturday and later on Sunday he succumbed to injuries. Based on a complaint by Saroj's brother, the police have registered a First Information Report. He, however, said that two police teams have been dispatched to ensure the arrest of three more persons who were wanted in connection with the incident.

Saroj was sitting on the staircase with his friends Sameer, Prakash and Siddharth when a man named Vijay Shankar Singh and his friends arrived at the restaurant for dinner. "I was hit with chairs too, but I managed to escape".

An FIR was lodged against Singh and his friend under Sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 307 (attempt to murder) and 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide) of IPC.

The men soon started assaulting Dileep with bricks and sticks, leaving him seriously injured.

The police had also identified, Vijay Shankar, a travelling ticket examiner (TTE) with the Railways as one of the attackers.

Richa Singh, a former president of the Allahabad University Student Union , said: "Serious crimes are taking place near the university every day".
