“It all started on August 11, when the victim brought the dead cow for skinning from a nearby village. Instead of the designated place he started skinning it near the crematorium. Though the victim agreed to follow the rules next time, one of the accused entered into a heated altercation with him.

Later on next day around 15 men attacked the man and his mother outside their home. No arrests have been made so far.

These lynching have become common all across India since last year. The Government has failed to initiate tough actions and has done little to stop the insane caste based crimes.
