The convicts being taken to court Ramgarh | Sanya Dhingra  ThePrint

In the first sentencing in a case related to violence on the pretext of cow protection, a fast-track court in Jharkhand awarded life imprisonment on Wednesday to 11 convicts, including BJP's Ramgarh district media in-charge Nityanand Mahto, for lynching Alimuddin Ansari, a meat trader, in June a year ago. Ansari was lynched while he was carrying beef.

Judge Om Prakash had found them guilty on March 16 under IPC sections 147 (rioting), 148 (rioting with deadly weapons), 149 (unlawful assembly), 435 (mischief by fire or explosive substance) and 302 (murder). Forensic tests later confirmed that the meat he was carrying was beef.

Phone call records had shown that one of the accused tracked Ansari for about two hours and informed others about the victims's location before intercepting him on 29 June.

The prosecution lawyer who had prayed for capital punishment describing the offence as the "rarest of rare", later claimed that the punishment was the first in the country involving cow vigilantes. The court has directed the district administration to award an adequate compensation to the family. The incident of lynching mostly happened in the BJP-ruled states - Jharkhand, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.

The conviction and sentences came after about a year of the incident. Among those given life sentence also includes a district BJP leader and at least three members of the local "gau raksha samiti", reported Indian Express.

The deceased's family member have appealed the government to ensure a high amount of compensation as Ansari was the sole-breadwinner in the house.
