Two Muslim women beaten over beef rumour in Mandsaur

Bhopal:

Two weeks after four Dalit men were stripped and beaten with sticks for allegedly transporting beef in Gujarat, another similar incident has been reported from Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh. This time, two women were slapped and kicked by a mob led by cow vigilantes at a railway station in Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday for allegedly carrying beef.

The incident was also filmed by one of the onlookers, who did not come forward for help. The policemen in the video are seen making half-hearted attempts to control the crowd.

According to the police, they were at the railway station to arrest the women after a tip off about them carrying a large quantity of beef to sell. Even after the two women were caught by police, a crowd gathered at the railway station assaulted them.

The people in the crowd, who slapped the women, are heard screaming "Gau Mata Ki Jai (Hail holy cow)" in the video. According to police sources, 30 kg of meat was recovered from the women. However, after examining, a local doctor pronounced it buffalo meat, not beef, claim the police.

While the women have been charged as they did not have a permit to sell meat, no action has been taken against the those who assaulted them. State home minister Bhupendra Singh said: "No can take law in their own hands. A probe will be conducted."

Meanwhile, the issue was raised in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.
