Muslim man beaten to death 'over New Year music'

A Muslim has been beaten to death in the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand after reportedly asking a group to stop playing loud music on New Year's Day. The incident happened in Mandar, a town close to the state capital, Ranchi. People blocked the national motorway on Tuesday to demand the arrest of suspects but the blockade was eventually cleared by police. Waseem Ansari and two of his friends approached the group and told them to stop playing loud music. This led to an argument and Waseem was attacked by the group. It seems he was hit by one of the sharp instruments used in cooking.
