A 50-year-old man, Mohammad Akhlaq, was beaten to death and his 22-year-old son severely injured on Monday night in UP’s Dadri, allegedly by residents of Bisara village, after rumors spread in the area about the family storing and consuming beef, police said.
Some locals spread rumors that Akhlaq had cow meat at his home and engaged in cow-slaughtering. Following the rumors, tension ignited and some locals attacked his home in Bisara village, Akhlaq’s daughter, Sajida, said the family had “mutton in the fridge” and not beef.
