NEW DELHI - Police in India have arrested three men in eastern Bihar state in connection with the death of a Muslim man who was attacked because he was suspected of carrying beef, a police official said on Saturday, according to Al Arabia News.
The victim, Naseem Qureshi, 56, died earlier this week after being attacked by a mob on suspicion of carrying beef, the sale and consumption of which is restricted in some parts of the country by local governments.
Bihar is currently ruled by a regional party, and Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party sits in the opposition.
In the latest incident in the state, the victim was allegedly surrounded by over twenty people and attacked, according to a police statement in court.
Police intervened but Qureshi died on the way to the hospital, according to the statement.
