Can't be done inside Squid (yet). You need to do it at the TCP level.

Sending a RST packet to the Squid TCP socket which the client is using
for that connection is probably the most effective way. Depending on the
squid version that port number might be visible in the active_clients
cache manager report page. As the "peer: " details next to the URL.
   squidclient -h $squid mgr:active_requests


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE9 or 3.1.14
