Two policemen have now been suspended over the incident. The National Human Rights Commission has even requested a full report on the police officers' behaviour, accusing them of negligence. The NHRC released a statement stating that "Based on a complaint in connection with the incident, a notice was issued to the Maharashtra director general of police (DGP) over the mob lynching of three persons in the presence of police personnel in Palghar district on April 16," going on to say that the incident suggests negligence on the part of the police. The punishment of the police following the lynching clearly indicates that they did handled the incident incorrectly, and indicates that they were complicit.
