The attack on a 25-year-old man on Friday for transporting beef to Gurugram has sparked a huge backlash. A mob attacked the young man and police officers present at the scene stood by and watched.
The man, identified as Lakman, a victim of cow awakening, was hit in the head where his head was tied with a hammer. People are amazed at how the incident was allowed.
Lukeman attacked to take the beef
A video was released on Friday showing a young man being beaten by mobs in Gurugram, Haryana. A 25-year-old man was beaten to death by a mob while transporting buffalo meat in a truck at 9am on Friday.
In the video, police are standing in a position where no one is taking any action. It is learned that the mob also misbehaved with the police who arrived at the spot. Lukeman filed FIRs against people sued under various sections of the IPC, including riots and illegal rallies.
They attacked Lakman with sticks and hit him on the head with a hammer. The video has caused a stir online. A 26-year-old Pradeep Yadav has been arrested in connection with the case.
While the police were deployed to handle the situation, the mob became aggressive towards the police, the staff told the Indian Express, where the mob also broke the glass of the police vehicle. While circulating a video, there were three videos released, one where the mob was beating the driver, one where the mob was hitting him inside his truck, and another where the police were pushing the crowd back.
Netizens are questioning why the police were not significant in their performance and comparing the incident to the 2015 Dadri lynching incident.
