Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Taking a serious note of the attack on Muslim youths allegedly by cow vigilantes in Kanjhawala area of outer Delhi, the National Commission for Minorities (NCM) has asked police to submit a report on the incident at the earliest.

"The Commission has taken an extremely serious view of the attack on Muslim youths by cow vigilantes in Delhi. It has written to the Commissioner of Police (Alok Kumar Verma) to submit the report at the earliest," NCM member Praveen Davar said.

Davar urged the government to facilitate medical treatment of those injured in the assault and demanded that those responsible "should not get away with it".

"We will wait for the report and take it up during our meeting next week. The Commission can make further remarks only after discussing it. Meanwhile, the government can ensure that the victims get medical treatment," Davar added.

Three persons, including a minor, were thrashed by a group of men when they were going to allegedly dispose of animal entrails and hide of animals sacrificed on the occasion of Bakra Eid at around 8 PM on Wednesday.

The police have arrested four persons, while it has launched a hunt to nab other attackers.
