NOIDA: A court in Noida today adjourned the hearing on the petition seeking registration of an FIR against the family members of Mohammad Akhlaq, who was lynched nine months ago on suspicion that his family stored and ate beef at their house.

Meanwhile, the police has filed its report in the court stating that ‘no FIR’ on charges of cow slaughter and animal cruelty has been lodged against Akhlaq's family.

The petitioner has urged the court to direct the police to register an FIR against Akhlaq’s family members on charges of cow slaughter and animal cruelty.

The petition claims that on September 29 last year, two villagers from Bisada, Ranvir and Jatan, saw Akhlaq and his son Danish beat up a calf. Akhlaq allegedly told them that since the calf was attacking the people, he was going to tie up the animal at his brother Jaan Mohammed's house.

The petition said another villager Prem Singh while passing by Akhlaq's house saw the latter holding the calf down while his brother Jaan Mohammad was slitting the animal's throat.

According to the petitioner, Akhlaq was on September 28 night stopped near Bada transformer by some residents, while others reached his house and found a vessel with remains of some animal and meat.

The petitioner claimed the mob got out of control and beat up Akhlaq and his son Danish. Akhlaq was beaten to death.

The petitioner has also cited forensic report by the Mathura forensic lab, which said the meat samples sent by the police was of an animal of the cow progeny.

Meanwhile, three accused Shriom, Hariom, and Vivek have filed bail applications, which is likely to be heard on June 20.

The hearing on arguments on framing of charges will start from July 4.
