Maharashtra man thrashed for carrying beef

The latest incident happened in Nagpur where a 36-year-old Muslim man was assaulted by four men for carrying goat meat which the attackers assumed was beef. The incident reportedly took place on Wednesday July 12.

According to the police, the man who has been identified as Ismail Shah was travelling on his two-wheeler in the Bharsingi area when he was stopped by four self-proclaimed cow vigilantes reportedly belonging to an outfit called the Prahar Sangataghana. The news agency has also a video showing the man being dragged and kicked around by the men.

Sheikh, a resident of Katol town, was returning home on his motorcycle when 5-6 men accosted him at a bus stop in Bharsingi village on suspicion that he was carrying beef. Jalalkheda police have also booked Shah for possessing "beef".SP, Nagpur rural, Shailesh Balkawade said the beef has been sent for testing after being packed by police in presence of veterinarians. In the attack, Sheikh suffered injuries on his face and neck.

"We have arrested all the four accused and they would be produced before the court for police custody", Jalalkheda police station in-charge Vijay Tiwari said on Thursday.

The victim, following the incident, lodged a complaint against unidentified persons.

The section 326 of IPC draws in a maximum punishment of life imprisonment. The report is awaited.

The kit is slated to be provided to the police to check if the meat seized is of cow or not, say officials. From all angles, the incident is being investigated, he added.

Terrorism in the name of cow is increasing each passing day.

The most recent death is that of Junaid Khan, a 16-year-old boy, who was stabbed to death on a train in Haryana by a mob in June.

Junaid's incident was followed by a lynching in Jharkhand's Ramgarh district where a mob of more than 100 people attacked a 45-year-old Muslim trader, Alimuddin aka Asgar Ali, on the suspicion of carrying beef in his vehicle.

Even though Prime Minister Narendra Modi had warned the cow vigilantes against such violence, such cases of lynching have not reduced.
