A 55-year-old man was beaten to death by a violent mob of around 300 people allegedly over suspicion of cattle theft in Bihar’s Araria district, according to media reports.
The police lodged a case and initiated an investigation after a couple of videos of the incident.
In the videos, the deceased, identified as Kabul Miyan, can be seen pleading mercy while he is being backed in the face, hit with sticks and repeatedly abused and called thief.
According to a report, the attackers, led by another local called Muslim Miyan, can be heard laughing and encouraging each other to continue thrashing the man. They even removed the victim’s clothes as they rained blows on him.
