    Lynched in the presence of hundreds of security personnel on 28 June, 2018, Jahid Khan was killed by a mob inside the campus of the Tripura State Rifles Camp. Who was Jahid Khan? Listen to his wife and daughter describe the love they have lost. Watch home videos of a father with his daughter, a husband with his wife, a man in love with life itself. Who killed Jahid Khan? Why have eye-witness statements still not been recorded despite video evidence of police complicity? Who will support a distraught family seeking justice and livelihood? The Karwan e Mohabbat has tried to piece together this story.
