In a heart-wrenching incident, a 55-year-old man was mercilessly beaten to death by a mob in Bihar’s Araria district over alleged ‘cow theft’. The incident reportedly occurred in Simarbani village which is about 300 km from Patna on December 29.
The shocking incident came to light only 2 days later after clips shot by some of the attackers started doing rounds on social media. The victim, in this incident, identified as Kabul Miyan who is a 55-year-old man, was also a former village head.
In the video clip, the angry mob around 300 people was in no mood to listen to the man who is constantly trying to plead with them. As per the reports, the mob was led by a man, Muslim Miyan, who reportedly had accused Kabul Miyan of stealing a cow.
The victim, who was bleeding at a great extent from the head and stripped tried to tell them that he did not steal the cattle. But the mob went on attacking him with stones and sticks while others were taking the video. It has been nearly a week since the murder but no arrests have been made in the case.
