Mob cruelty takes an innocent life in Kerala as a migrant worker from Assam died after he was allegedly tortured by a mob and was forced to lie down on the road in the sweltering heat for hours, on Wednesday.

The incident took place at Chiravamuttam village in Kottayam, Kerala.

The victim identified by the police as 31-year-old Kailash Jyoti Behra, who had arrived with three others in Kerala on Wednesday. It was his first visit to Kerala. The four boarded a bus to Chingavanam, but Behra got separated from his friend, reported The Indian Express.

He was later seen in Chiravamuttam, where the villagers mistook him for a thief and tortured him. They tied his hands and legs and forced him to lie down on the road during noon when the temperature was about 37 degrees.

The police reached the spot after getting some information. They found him foaming from his mouth. He was rushed to hospital then where he was declared dead.

A police officer has said that they found 50 men surrounding the victim at the spot. According to the police, they have been able to identify the accused. However, the autopsy test will be conducted to know the reason of death. Once the report is out, police will be able to take further action and arrest people.

The Logical Indian condemns such an act of mob cruelty, particularly when the victim is someone innocent. In India, often a culprit is punished by mob justice that amounts to severe brutality and barbarism. This practices should stop for a better function of law and order.
