The second case also took place in Badlapur area of Greater Noida where a driver Aftab Alam was killed on Sunday night. A cab driver hailing from Trilokpuri, Delhi, was returning to one of his clients leaving Bulandshahr and then the incident occurred. Aftab’s son Sabir has a recording of his father’s phone call.
According to him, his father was killed because he was a Muslim. Sabir alleges that the attackers were asking him to speak Jai Shri Ram while beating his father. Sabir said that the mob lynching of his father has been done, but instead of investigating in the right direction Badlapur has started calling it a case of loot.
