A forensic test has proved that the meat which was found in Akhlaq's fridge was mutton, and not beef. Police had sent a sample of the meat from Akhlaq's fridge for forensic testing. Initial tests had suggested that it was mutton. However, the police had further sent the sample to another lab for a conclusive report. The conclusive tests also showed that it was mutton and not beef, reports Times of India. The police, however, is being criticized for sending the meat sample for a forensic test because whether it was mutton or beef had little bearing on the crime. On September 28, Akhlaq was allegedly beaten to death and his son left injured by a 200-strong mob following a rumour that his family was involved in cow slaughter.
