Hindutva goons and policeman thrash four men in MP over suspicion of cow smuggling

By TwoCircles.net Staff Reporter

Another violent incident of cow-vigilantism has been reported, this time from Betul district of Madhya Pradesh where members of a so called ‘cow-protector’ outfit thrashed four men accusing them of smuggling cows.

The incident took place at Dulhara village, which is around 110 kilometres from Betul’s district headquarters. The incident happened Friday last week but came to light yesterday when the video of the same was circulated on social media platforms.

The victims Suresh Meena, Mohammad Sameer, Roop Singh and Mohammad Afzal were bathing in a river in the Dulhara village when some of the locals gathered near the river and thrashed them, accusing them of smuggling cows. All the victims belong to Harda district.

The video shows the victims tied and being beaten up by the goons. What makes the incident look more bizarre that a policeman is also spotted thrashing the victims.

There was no police case registered against anybody until yesterday. After the video went viral, police registered a case against assailants as well as the victims.

Police SDO Prem Singh Thakur informed the press that Sections 341, 147, 294 and 323 of IPC was lodged against identified assailants Shyam, Manak, Sundar Parate and others. The policeman spotted in the video is yet to be identified. All of them are absconding.

Moreover, the police officer told PTI that case against the cow smugglers has also been registered. “The cow smugglers have been arrested. We are investigating the video clip and will take further action accordingly.”
