Lucknow/Nagpur: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today questioned the authenticity of the forensic report which stated that the meat found from Dadri lynching victim Mohammad Akhlaq’s house was of “cow or its progeny”, even as BJP leader Yogi Adityanath demanded registration of cow slaughter case against Akhlaq’s family.

“Where was the sample sent, who received it? There was nothing objectionable in his house. Every eye is on this matter. Everyone wants that the victim’s family should get justice as murder had taken place.

“After this incident, there was debate in the world regarding what to eat and speak. I think one should not get involved in such matters,” Yadav told reporters in Ambedkar Nagar district. His remarks came after a report prepared by a forensic lab in Mathura concluded that the meat found in the victim’s house was beef.
