Vigilante justice today has become a common affair in the country. Almost every month, a case of mob violence surfaces from different parts of India. In a similar case reported from Delhi’s Jahangirpuri area, a 35-year-old man was lynched by a mob and was found dead in a pool of blood.

As reported by Hindustan Times, the incident happened on September 11, when Mahmood, a rag picker, was thrashed by an angry mob of the neighbourhood outside the parking lot of Kushal cinema in Jahangirpuri in the evening hours over allegations of stealing a pull cart. He was tied and allegedly beaten to death.

A photograph and a video of Mehboob being beaten and strangled by few women were received by his wife Sahiba, who handed over those to the police. However, she later alleged that the police didn’t arrest anyone or register any murder case. The police recorded it as death caused by negligence.

DCP (northwest) Vijay Singh dismissed the allegation and said: “We have taken correct legal action.”

The mother of three said that she was informed of the attack by her friends, but she could not imagine his fate as her friends told police rescued him and he was let off later.

Mehboob didn’t return the next morning. A private guard at Kushal cinema found him lying in a pool of blood.
