Men transporting buffaloes attacked in Delhi by violent mob

Six men in Delhi were thrashed by violent mob while transporting 80 buffaloes in mini trucks to a slaughter house in east Delhi. Mob released all the buffaloes and the people carrying buffaloes were blocked by a group of unidentified men.

Before the arrival of police the mob flew away, then the police admitted those six men to a nearby hospital where they got treatment. Five of them have been released after treatment but one 40 year old Ali Jan is still struggling with his injuries.

Police registered FIR against a group of unidentified men but till now no arrests have been made so far. Victims said they had all the legal documents for transporting the buffaloes.

Mob lynching has taken a rise in the recent past. Last week, a man in Jharkhand was beaten black and blue by a mob who accused him of carrying beef in his car. The man later died and his car was set on fire. A similar incident was reported in Haryana where a 16 year old, Junaid Khan was killed by a group of men while he was boarding on train.

A silent protest “Not In My Name” was carried out across the nation to protest against mob lynching and cow vigilantism.
