New Delhi: Intezar Ali Muddi Ali Sheikh who was engaged in a transport business has been lynched recently. Now, his family members, a widow and her three children, who are left with no source of income are in urgent need of financial aid.

All India Muslim (Zanaana) Federation TS Committee President Advocate High Court Nusrath Shahzadi who is also the Working President of Jana Parishad (newly formed party) have appealed to philanthropists to help the widow as much as possible as the widow has a lot of responsibilities including the educational expenses of three children, legal expenses, etc.

Intezar Ali who was engaged in the transport business was said to be taken by three-four persons for an assignment on May 6, 2022, from his house, room no. 2, Anas Chawl, Bohir Compound, near Kurmura Bhatti, Shil Diva Road, Shyphata, Kausa Mumbrah, Nusrath Shahzadi said.

On May 7, he was found lying on the roadside in the market of Mangaon in Raigarh district about a hundred kilometers away from his residence in a very critical condition as deadly injuries had been caused in various parts of his body in an act of mob lynching, Nusrath Shahzadi said.

The local police has brought him to the hospital where it is said that he succumbed to his injuries. The cops on May 8 approached the widow Firdaus for the identification of the body of the deceased. On the same day, FIR was lodged against thirteen persons for mob lynching, Nusrath Shahzadi addded.
