One more Muslim man was on Thursday lynched to death in Jharkhand’s Ramgarh district on rumours that he was carrying the ‘banned meat.’
The incident occurred on the day Prime Minister Narendra Modi broke his silence to condemn attacks on innocent citizens by so-called cow protectors.
Police sources, according to IANS, said that Alimuddin alias Asgar Ansari was carrying the “banned meat” in a Maruti van.
He was stopped by a group of people near Bajartand village before being brutally killed.
The right-wing terrorists also set his Maruti van on fire.
“It’s premeditated murder,” Additional Director General of Police R.K. Mallik told IANS.
“Asgar was chargesheeted for child abduction and murder,” the officer said, adding that some people involved in beef trade hatched a conspiracy to kill him. “The killers have been identified.”
This is second such case in Jharkhand in the last three days.
In Giridih district, a mob thrashed a person and set on fire his house after a cow head was found.
