Muslim men beaten by BSF for carrying beef

The victims, Mohammad Giyasuddin and his son Anwarul Haque, had purchased 15 kg of beef for the ‘rukhsati’ of a bride. They were stopped by BSF jawans and asked to disclose the contents in their bag. Upon seeing the beef, they were taken to an outpost and were assaulted and beaten. Despite being constantly telling that the beef was for a family function, the meat was buried. Anwarul was admitted to the Islampur hospital for a week while Giyasuddin was taken to the Lodhi primary health centre for medical aid and treatment. A complaint was filed in Goalpokher police.
