A man was beaten to death and another injured when a mob attacked them on suspicion of robbery in Gujarat’s Dahod district, police said on Sunday.
Ajmal Mohaniya became the latest casualty in the recent spate of mob violence across the country.
A group of over a dozen people went to Kali Mahudi village in Jhalod administrative division — 35 km from here — with an aim to “commit robbery” late on Saturday night, said Limdi police station inspector P M Judal.
“When the villagers came to know about their movements, they gathered at a place. As soon as they saw the ‘robbers’, the mob chased them and caught hold of two, while the others managed to flee,” the inspector said.
The agitated villagers allegedly thrashed the two men, injuring both of them seriously by the time the police arrived, Judal said.
