A Muslim man was lynched to death following a rumour of cow slaughter in a village in Pilkhua near Hapur district of western UP. The man named Kashim died in the hospital in the course of treatment. The condition of the other person is also serious.

A trivial feud, where men were reportedly driving out stray cows from fields, aggravated into a big controversy after rumour of cow-slaughter broke out. It led to the lynching of the two men by the irate mob resulting in the death of one.

Police officials reached the spot on being informed by the brother of the victim and filed a complaint against 25 unknown people and two have been arrested. The villagers attacked the men over suspicion of cow slaughter.

As per the locals a farmer named Samaydeen had left his farm to bring fodder for his cattle, meanwhile Kashim entered the farm and was driving out a cattle and calf who had entered Samyadeen’s farm, but somebody spread the rumour of cow slaughter.
