In another incident of assault in the name of cow protection, a Nagpur man was allegedly beaten up by a four-member gang for allegedly carrying beef, ANI reported. The incident reportedly took place in Bharsingi area of the city. The police has registered a case and four people have been detained for interrogation. A video tweeted by ANI showed the man being dragged and kicked by several people. The meat sample has been taken for forensic analysis. The incidents of hooliganism and lynching have taken a surge in recent times. Last month only, Junaid Khan, a 15-year-old boy, was killed on a Mathura-bound train lynched by a mob in Haryana’s Ballabhgarh on the charges of carrying beef. However, it was later reported that Junaid and his two friends were allegedly beaten for not vacating their seats.

However, it was later reported that Junaid and his two friends were allegedly beaten for not vacating their seats. The boys were called ‘beef-eaters’ by the mob. Prime Minister Narendra Modi too took note of the incident and condemned violence in the name of ‘gau raksha’.

“Killing people in the name of Gau Bhakti is not acceptable. This is not something Mahatma Gandhi would approve,” he tweeted. “Killing people in the name of cow is unacceptable. No one has the right to take the law into his/her hands. We belong to a land of non-violence. Violence is not the solution to any problem,” Modi added. In August last year, PM had condemned actions of cow vigilantes. “It makes me angry that people are running shops in the name of cow protection… Some people indulge in anti-social activities at night, and in the day masquerade as cow protectors,” PM Modi said.
