Cattle trader lynched in Udupi Karnataka

Husainabba, who was allegedly transporting cattle in a Scorpio vehicle on May 30, died after he was waylaid and assaulted by Bajrang Dal activists near Hiriyadka in Udupi. The police in its UDR claimed he had a heart attack while trying to get away, but later arrested the Bajrang Dal activists and three policemen including an SI, for allegedly colluding with them based on a complaint filed by Husainabba's brother. The Karnataka Komu Sauhardha Vedike says there were 12 cases of cattle vigilantism in 2016 here and 22 last year. The cases include attacks not only on those transporting cattle illegally but also those who are doing it legally with all necessary documents, according to him.
