Father of Junaid demands death penalty for culprit

New Delhi : Father of 16-year-old boy Junaid, who was brutally lynched on a moving train, has demanded death penalty for the prime accused who was nabbed from Maharashtra on Saturday.

The prime accused was hiding in Dhule since the incident, which triggered nationwide outrage. On interrogation, he confessed to his crime, said a GRP official.

The accused, whose name the GRP police declined to reveal, hails from Palwal district of Haryana, close to Ballabgarh, the village of the victims.

The accused is likely to be produced before a Dhule magistrate for a transit remand on Sunday and later handed over to the police in Delhi.

The accused had lynched Junaid and his brother on an EMU train going from Ghaziabad to Mathura over a seat dispute.
