Mob-lynching

A 32-year-old man was tied him to a tree and allegedly lynched by a mob on suspicion of theft in Uttar Pradesh’s Aonla town.

According to reports, some of the attackers joined the crowd for the sheer ‘fun’ of it and posed for mobile cameras while the victim, Basid Khan, was being thrashed in the background on Friday.

Basid, it later turned out, was an alcoholic but not a thief. Basid was handed over to police who set him free as no one came forward to file a complaint against him.

His family, on seeing his condition, took him to hospital where he died of internal bleeding the next day.

A heavy police force was deployed in the area.

Senior superintendent of police (SSP) Shailesh Pandey told reporters, “I have received a video in which Basid is seen tied to a tree and locals were thrashing him. We are trying to identify the accused using the videos of the incident. There were no visible injuries on the body. The post-mortem will be conducted by a panel of doctors to ascertain the reason of death.”

Basid’s mother told reporters, “People were beating my son for ‘fun’. The police dropped him home in a rickshaw and Basid was in great pain. We took him to hospital, but he died there.”

Murder

A 29-year-old woman was strangled by her husband after she confronted him over his alleged extra marital affair in Delhi’s Paharganj. The woman was found in an unconscious state on Thursday morning with ligature marks on her neck. When she was rushed to the hospital she was declared brought dead.

Suspicion fell on the husband as the children of the deceased were with their grandparents and the husband was missing post midnight.

A photo of the deceased’s husband was taken from their house and the police began to trace the suspect.

The accused Sunny, an e-rickshaw driver, tried to flee in his vehicle. The police team started stopping e-rickshaw drivers in the vicinity and tried to identify the suspect through his photograph.

Meanwhile, a policeman saw a person who turned around his e-rickshaw and tried to escape from the spot where the team was checking the vehicles but the police team apprehended the suspect.

Local legislator N.K. Sharma said the building was constructed in violation of laws.

“The Municipal Committee office is located just a stone’s throw away from the disaster spot. This indicates that the construction was undertaken in connivance of municipal officials,” he told the media at the spot.
