NEW DELHI: Police officials claimed that two Muslim cowherds were allegedly beaten and hanged to death by unknown assailants in the eastern Indian state Jharkand.
The victims were identified as Mazlum Ansari 35 years old and Imtiaz Khan 15 who were taking eight buffaloes to the market.
Police said “The sight suggested that the two of them were subjected to extreme levels of brutality. It means that the assailants were moved by extreme hatred.”
The locals hold protest against murder and blocked the highway, and demanded for immediate action against the responsibles.
They claimed that Hindu radicals were the assailants and police supported them.
However police arrested five persons in connection with the murder and claimed that investigation is in process.
Hindu extremists target Muslims in India on daily basis in the name of cow protection.
Four Kashmiri students were allegedly beaten for cooking beef meat in a university hostel which was later proved wrong.
