JAIPUR – In a significant development, police in Rajasthan have taken into custody Monu Manesar, a cow vigilante, for questioning in connection with the gruesome murder of two Muslim men, Nasir and Junaid, whose charred bodies were recovered in Haryana’s Bhiwani district back in February. Monu, who is also known by his official name, Mohit Yadav, was apprehended on Tuesday, and he is now in custody awaiting interrogation.

The Haryana Police have not officially confirmed Monu Manesar’s detention. However, an office-bearer of the Vishva Hindu Parishad, the parent organization of the Bajrang Dal, revealed that he was picked up in Gurugram’s Manesar and subsequently handed over to the Rajasthan Police. The transfer of custody followed the Rajasthan Police obtaining a transit remand from a court in Nuh.

Monu Manesar was transported to Bharatpur and presented before a local court, which subsequently ordered his two-day police remand. During this remand period, the Superintendent of Police (Deeg), Brijesh Jyoti Upadhyay, stated that the police would interrogate Monu Manesar regarding his alleged involvement in the murders of Junaid and Nasir.

The grim incident dates back to February when Monu Manesar was named in a First Information Report (FIR) lodged by the Rajasthan Police. Nasir, aged 25, and Junaid, aged 35, both hailing from Ghatmika village in Rajasthan’s Deeg district, were reportedly abducted by suspected cow vigilantes. These perpetrators then crossed the border into Haryana, where the victims’ charred remains were discovered in a burnt car in Loharu, Bhiwani.

The Rajasthan Police had announced last month that they were actively investigating Monu Manesar’s role in allegedly conspiring and abetting the crime, which had sent shockwaves across the region.

In a related development, Monu Manesar had also faced accusations of being a trigger for the violence that erupted in July. During these incidents, a Vishva Hindu Parishad procession was targeted by mobs in Nuh, resulting in the tragic deaths of six people in Nuh district and neighboring Gurugram.

As the investigation unfolds, authorities are working diligently to uncover the truth behind these distressing events, with the hope of bringing justice to the victims and their families. Monu Manesar’s detention marks a significant step in the ongoing pursuit of justice in this case, while also shedding light on the broader issue of cow vigilantism and communal tensions in the region.
