LUCKNOW: The family members of Dadri lynching victim Mohd Ikhlaq, whose killing generated considerable political heat in the country, today told Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav that they do not want the probe to continue into the matter while expressing satisfaction over the action taken in the case.

A UP government spokesperson said that the mother, brothers and other kin of Ikhlaq, the resident of Bishada village in Gautam Budh Nagar district whose killing in September sparked nationwide outrage, called on Yadav at his residence here.

According to the spokesperson, the family members of the victim said they were satisfied with the action taken in the case so far and with the Rs 45 lakh compensation extended to them.

50-year-old Ikhlaq was beaten to death and his 22-year- old son Danish critically injured by a 200-strong mob which barged into their house following rumours that the family had consumed beef. Cow slaughter is banned in UP.

Danish's elder brother, Sartaj, is a corporal with Indian Air Force and Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar had said following the lynching incident that Sartaj was being given accommodation at Air Force's Subroto Park residential complex in Delhi.

Amidst debate in political circles over the issue, the Union government told Parliament during the current Winter Session that though no inquiry has been initiated by the Home Ministry into the Dadri lynching, a report has been sought from the state government on the incident.

Meanwhile, the kin of a police constable, Azmat, posted in Bulandshahr who died allegedly due to a wrong injection in October this year, too, met the chief minister.

Yadav condoled the bereaved family members and extended to them a compensation of Rs 20 lakh. He also said that strict action would be taken against those found responsible for having caused Azmat's death.
