A 19-year-old Muslim man was tied to a pole and beaten to death, for being in love with a Hindu girl, in Jharkhand’s Gumla district.
The police have confirmed that they have arrested three men after the attack, after the girl had given them a lead during the interrogation.
Mohammad Shalik was the name of the deceased. He allegedly had an affair with a 15-year-old girl, who was Hindu. One day when he came to the girl’s house to drop her, the locals felt enraged and tied him to a pole. He was beaten to death.
The Superintendent of Police, Chandan Prakash Jha added that the investigation is going on and also they are trying to find out if the family of the girl was involved in instigating the crowd, as they did not approve of the relationship.
