RANCHI : In another shocking incident two Muslim men herding eight buffaloes who were on their way to a local Friday market were tortured and hanged to death from a tree by unknown assailants at Balumath forests in Latehar district, 100km from here, in the wee hours on Friday.
Muhammad Majloom, 35, and Azad Khan, 15, were allegedly hanged from a tree after being tortured in Jhabbar village of Latehar district near Ranchi on Friday. The two had their hands tied together behind their backs and their mouth was closed with a cloth.
“The sight suggested that the two of them were subjected to extreme levels of brutality. It means that the assailants were moved by extreme hatred,” a police officer was quoted as saying.
Attacks by Hindu radicals on beef loaded trucks is also very common in this BJP ruled state.
Kolkata -bound trucks carrying beef/ animal skins coming from neighbouring state Bihar are thoroughly checked by Hindu radicals on the highways of Jharkhand and on the basis of mere suspicion the drivers are tortured and goods are destroyed.
Ironically most of the Kolkata based beef exporters are Hindus.http://muslimmirror.com/eng/two-muslim-cattle-traders-were-hanged-to-death-by-hindu-radicals-in-jharkhand/
