Satyajeet Kumar: In Radhanagar village, Sahibganj, Jharkhand, a man is said to have been beaten with sticks and stones by five people for refusing to consume alcohol and beef.
In his complaint, Chandan Ravidas said he was beaten up by five men for refusing to eat red meat on New Year’s Eve. He accused Mithun Sheikh and four others of physical assault.
According to Chandan, he went to Pakinja Mor’s shop on Saturday night. A violent altercation erupted, after which five men allegedly tried to force him to eat beef.
