In yet another unfortunate lynching incident, two Muslim men were brutally beaten by the mob in Satna district of Madhya Pradesh,  suspected of cow slaughtering, NewsX reported. Riyaz, 45, a tailor by profession was killed at the spot and Shakeel, 38, is being treated in a private hospital in Jabalpur. His condition is deemed critical.

According to The Hindustan Times, the attackers armed with sticks had allegedly beaten them in Amagara village, which is 28 km from their home in the Purani Basti neighbourhood of Maihar town, at around 3 am.

The situation in Satna is tensed with additional police personnel being deployed to defuse any mischief. Home Minister Rajnath Singh is due to visit the place on Saturday.

Further, talking to The New Indian Express, Satna district Superintendent of Police Rajesh Hingankar told, “A case of murder, attempted murder and crime with common intent under Sections 302, 307 and 34 of IPC was lodged immediately against the accused on the complaint of critically injured Shakeel. Four accused identified as Pawan Singh Gond, Vijay Singh Gond, Phool Singh Gond and Narayan Singh Gond were arrested on Saturday and have been sent into judicial custody”.

The Police have also lodged FIRs against Riyaz and Shakeel under sections of the Madhya Pradesh Cow Slaughter Ban Act, 2004, and the Madhya Pradesh Agriculture Cattle Preservation Act, 1959.

The New Indian Express further elucidates that two men while returning from a movie spotted Riyaz, Shakeel, Zaki and Ismail near a hillock, according to the police probe. The two men then found carcasses of slaughtered cows at the spot. After informing the villagers nearby, the angry mob caught and ruthlessly beat up Riyaz and Shakeel, after the two others managed to flee.

A resident then dialled 100 and the Satna police reached the spot in the wee hours of the morning, and both Riyaz and Shakeel were rushed to the hospital where Riyaz was pronounced dead. NDTV reported that the SP Rajesh Hingankar said, that two remains of two cows were recovered from the spot.

Talking to The Hindustan Times, Shakeel’s Father Ismail Khan said, “All I know is he had gone out to collect some dues from some person.

Riyaz is survived by his wife and three daughters and one son, eldest daughter being 18 years old and the son aged seven.
