Man dubbed cattle thief, thrashed in Ghazipur

A young man, working as a mechanical assistant at a metro construction site, was allegedly tied up and thrashed by a mob accusing him of being a cattle thief at Sarai Kale Khan here in the early hours of Friday.

The incident took place hours before six men were beaten up in Jharoda Kalan while transporting buffalo calves in vehicles to a slaughter house in Ghazipur.

While the police are yet to register an FIR, Iftikhar Alam, in his complaint submitted on Sunday, said the mob called him a Pakistani and kicked, punched and abused him.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (South East) Romil Baaniya said they were in the process of registering a case.

The attackers themselves made a PCR call charging Alam with cattle theft, and later changing the allegation to diesel theft, but the police said there was nothing to link him to either.
