New Delhi: The brother of the teenaged Muslim youth, who was stabbed to death onboard a Mathura- bound train, on Thursday said the family has identified the four accused. Junaid (17) was stabbed when he along with his brothers was returning home to Khandawli village in Ballabgarh after shopping for Eid in Delhi on Thursday.
His brothers, Hashim and Sakir, who were also traveling in the train with him were injured by a mob which also allegedly hurled slurs against them.
"We identified these four arrested accused when they were paraded before us. They were involved in beating and jostling with us (Junaid and his brothers on the train)," 20-year-old Hashim told reporters in his village in Ballabgarh.
A 50-year-old Delhi government employee was among four persons arrested on Wednesday in connection with the killing of a Muslim youth.
With the four arrests made on Wednesday, the number of those held in the case has climbed to five, according to Government Railway Police, Faridabad, SP, Kamaldeep Goel.
However, the "prime accused" was still at large, he added.
The four arrested accused belong to areas close to Hotel near Palwal in Faridabad and are believed to be regular commuters, police officials said.
Junaid's brothers had told reporters earlier that the attackers taunted and repeatedly called them "anti-nationals" and "beef eaters".
