Death Penalty for main accused in Junaid's case & strict sentencing for his associates

Government Railway Police (GRP) today arrested the main accused in Junaid Khan lynching case from Maharashtra.
Junaid Khan (17) was lynched on an EMU train going from Ghaziabad to Mathura on June 22.
According to police, the accused has admitted to have stabbed Junaid and his friends on train.
What actually happened was that while travelling on the Delhi-Mathura passenger train, Junaid had a fight with other passengers over a seat. The fight turned violent as someone claimed that the food packet that the group was carrying had beef in it.
People watched and even encouraged the mob who proceeded to repeatedly stab Junaid with a knife, all the while branding him "anti-national".
Junaid was killed while his two brothers, Hashim and Sakir, were injured while the mob hurled slurs against them on Thursday night.
Now just because the accused saw them carrying beef in their bags or because they are beef eaters they got stabbed? What sense does that make? This is such a bizarre case, and if not the death penalty, the strictest sentence must be imposed on the main accused and his associates. Even Junaid's father is demanding the death penalty for the main accused according to latest reports.
