In the heart of the Silicon Valley of India, an angry mob lynched a 26-year-old youth on suspicion of being a child smuggler. The incident took place in Pension Mohalla in Chamarajpet police limits on Wednesday afternoon. Seven people have been arrested in relation to the crime. Bengaluru City Police in a Facebook post also warned people against believing in rumours.

False rumours impacts in ending someone’s life. Believing in false rumors and taking law into their hands is unlawful….

The deceased has been identified as Kaluram, a native of Rajasthan. He was working as a daily wage labourer in Bengaluru. In the video, it can be seen that the man is being mercilessly dragged on the road by two boys. He was so beaten up that he could not even scream. Even though he had clearly given up, he was still beaten by cricket bats. An angry mob surrounded and watched the spectacle.

The police received information about the incident at 1:40 am. Upon receiving information, Assistant Sub-inspector Rajashekharaiah, attached to Cottonpet station, and other staff rushed to the scene in a Hoysala patrol vehicle, reported The New Indian Express.

“When the police reached there, they noticed a mob and few among them dragging the alleged child kidnapper on the road. There were more than 70 people. His hands were tied and many in the mob were shouting he was a child lifter while some others were kicking him and beating him with wooden sticks. As soon as the Hoysala vehicle stopped arrived there, the mob dispersed and those who were assaulting the suspect fled from the scene. Police found him drenched in blood as he had sustained head injuries. He was still breathing and was rushed to the Victoria Hospital nearby. Within 4-5 minutes he succumbed,” police said.

Police found an Aadhaar card in his pocket and identified him. “We also got in touch with his family in Rajasthan and his elder brother was informed about the incident. According to him, Kaluram was working in Mumbai and Pune, and has no idea when and why Kaluram came to Bengaluru,” a source said.

The Logical Indian Take

We need stringent punishments against those who resort to such acts of violence. To uphold the safety of citizens, law and order need to be established. In the meanwhile, people from all strata of life need to be educated and made aware of the evils of mob lynching.

This isn’t an isolated incident, but innocents are continually thrashed by goons who believe they are above the law. Moreover, it is astonishing that a crime this gruesome could take place in broad daylight that too in an urban city, a city that claims to be the Silicon Valley of India.
