Satyamev Jayate: Aamir Khan demands justice for Abdul Hakim
Meerut: Actor Aamir Khan expressed grief over the killing of Abdul Hakim, the casual labourer who exposed the Khap panchayat on the TV show 'Satyamev Jayate'.
Terming the incident as unfortunate, Aamir Khan said, “Will speak to the government authorities in UP to help and ensure the family is safe. The culprits must be brought to the book. The case is registered on the basis of right facts.”
Hakim was killed in cold blood in full public view on Thursday.
According to media reports, five armed men shot Hakim when he was going to the village doctor’s clinic to get medicines for his pregnant wife, Mahwish.
Talking to the media, Hakim’s brother said the assailants pumped several bullets into him.
Abdul and Mehawish had eloped from Meerut and got married in November 2010. Later they moved to Delhi. Even their family was forced to leave Meerut after the panchayat decreed death for the couple and started terrorising the family.
