He should be accorded the status of a martyr.” Gupta said.Mohammed Akhlaq was lynched in Dadri in Uttar Pradesh by a mob of cow vigilantes who suspected him of consuming beef.The incident had caused a nation-wide outrage.Meanwhile, senior member of All India Muslim Personal Law Board Zafaryab Jilani said, that even those who had played a role in the demolition of Babri Masjid were compensated by the Mulayam Singh Yadav government, when they had died.”Some people had them objected to it, but I did not. I was of the opinion that the financial assistance was for the family members. If the condition of the (Chandan Gupta’s) family is same as that of Akhlaq’s family, then state government can help this family. I have no objection,” he added
