It Was Beef' Says Police On Nagpur Man Dragged Thrashed For Carrying Meat

The Muslim man with links to the BJP who was thrashed by alleged cow vigilantes in Maharashtra's Nagpur district four days ago was carrying beef, police have said.

Confirming the development, Shailesh Balkawde, Superintendent of Police (Nagpur rural area) said that the lab report by the forensic department has "positively" identifies the seized meat as beef.

Shah, was aggressively beaten by "Gaurakshaks" on Wednesday with allegations of carrying beef.

Shaha's family, however, said he may not have known what he was carrying.

The incident took place when Shaha while returning home was stopped in Bharsingi village by 4 men who assaulted him and left unconscious by the road side, later found by the police. He is likely to be arrested once he is discharged from the hospital, where he is now recuperating from the numerous injuries he received on his face and neck after being attacked by four-five men. He added that Shah, who had insisted he was carrying mutton and not beef, was booked under relevant sections of law against cow slaughter.

"He (Shah) would be dismissed from the party". "Stern action should be taken against him according to the law, but people must not take law in their own hands and resort to violence in such cases", Potdar had said.

However, the BJP had sought to play it down, calling it a "stray" incident. They were placed under arrest on the day of the attack. "We condemn this incident, but one can not term it a failure of law and order machinery because this is a stray incident", BJP spokesman Niranjan Shetty said. He was called to the police station for interrogation today.
