Indian mob kills man over beef eating rumour - Al Jazeera English


Indian mob kills man over beef eating rumour - Al Jazeera English: A man has been dragged out of his house and beaten to death by a mob near New Delhi over rumours that his family killed and ate a cow, the victim's brother has told Al Jazeera.

Mohammed Akhlaq, 52, a resident of Bisara village in Gautam Budh Nagar, about 40km from the Indian capital, was attacked on Monday night.

He died of his injuries early on Tuesday while his 22-year-old son Mohammed Danish was admitted to a nearby hospital in a critical condition.

"My brother threw goat's skin in the garbage dump. But some people circulated a rumour that a cow was slaughtered and an announcement was made from the local temple," Mohammed Saifi, the victim's brother, said.

"Soon a mob of about 1,000 people, armed with lathis [batons] and swords, gathered and attacked the house of my brother.

"They did not even spare my 82-year-old mother Asgari Begum, who has suffered injuries, along with Akhlaq's wife and daughter, Sajida Saifi," he said.
