Fifteen men - accused of lynching 51-year-old Akhlaque Ahmed in Dadri, Uttar Pradesh have secured contractual jobs at National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) Limited under its employment scheme for villagers affected by the company’s projects.

All the 15 accused who are out on bail were granted the jobs with the help from local BJP MLA who claimed they all are innocents.

"The accused are innocents and that deserve a better deal", BJP MLA Tejpal Nagar, who facilitated the recruitment, said, as reported by The Hindu.

Akhlaq and his son Danish were dragged out of their home, mercilessly assaulted and then left for dead over allegations of slaughtering a calf and storing its meat in their fridge. While Akhlaq died on the spot, his son sustained critical injuries. The incident had occurred on September 29, 2015.

An NTPC spokesperson confirmed the job offer to the youths.

“Yes, we have agreed to give jobs to unemployed youths of Bishahra. It has nothing to do with Akhlaq’s lynching. Contractual jobs have been offered to many residents of Bishahra because it is the NTPC’s policy to give jobs to all project-affected persons based on their qualification and expertise,” he said.

The employment offer is part of the ‘Maharatna’ company’s scheme to offer opportunities to people affected by its projects — Bishahra is located in an NTPC plant’s vicinity and land from many villagers was acquired three decades ago to set it up.
