Muslim man lynched in West Bengal

A man died after being mercilessly beaten up by a mob in West Bengal’s Murshidabad on Wednesday, less than a week after the state Assembly cleared a bill to prevent lynching. He was trashed to death by locals at Lalbagh area of Baharampur town in Murshidabad, accusing him “intruding” into the premises of a polyclinic and attacking them “with chairs”. His body was later recovered from the balcony of the shop with his hands and legs tied with rope. He was declared brought dead at Murshidabad Medical College and Hospital.
