Bareilly: Yet another startling case of mob violence has come to light from the state of Uttar Pradesh where four daily wage labourers were mercilessly thrashed by unidentified assailants allegedly after they were seen eating meat near a makeshift temple. The incident which took place in Bareilly comes at the heels of outrage over the arrest of a teacher, two years after he wrote a Facebook post in support of consumption of beef.
The matter came to light earlier this week when a video of the assault began circulating on social media. A preliminary investigation has led police officials to suggest that the attack could have been due to two of the four labourers hail from minority communities. The victims of this attack had arrived at Baheri at the behest of a mason who had hired them to work as labourers, added police personnel.
