RAMGARH: On the day Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned that killings in the name of cow protection won’t be tolerated, a man was beaten to death by a mob on suspicion that he was carrying beef in his vehicle.
A case has been registered on the basis of a video footage of the lynching, police said.
SP Kishore Kaushal told a press conference that around 30 people surrounded the van bearing a West Bengal number plate in the Bazaar Tand area of Ramgarh police station.
They dragged out the driver of the vehicle, Mohd Allimuddin, a resident of neighbouring Hazaribagh district, and thrashed him injuring him seriously.
According to Kaushal, a case was registered on the basis of the video footage and asserted the guilty would be arrested soon.
