Ranchi (India), July 06 (KMS): A group of Hindu extremists abused and thrashed three Muslim youth and forced them to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogan after asking their names in Ranchi city of Indian state of Jharkhand.
A group of Hindu extremists attacked the youth and forced them to chant “Jai Shri Ram”. The youth, who sustained injuries, were immediately admitted to hospital.
Enraged members of Muslim community blocked the MG Marg near Church Complex, demanding immediate arrest of the culprits.
Aamir Wasim, who had lodged a complaint at the Doranda police station in Ranchi, said he and his friends, Altaf Ali and Ali Ahmed, had gone to the airport area to take photographs.
“We were riding our two-wheelers and were in kurta pajama when some people besieged us. Without any provocation, they beat us up and told us to chant “Jai Shri Ram”. As the crowd got bigger, we fled from the spot,” he said.
Tabrez Ansari, a 24-year-old youth, was beaten to death by a mob in Saraikela-Kharsawan district of Jharkhand last month.
