Indian police detain 3 in beating death of Muslim man

Indian police detain 3 in beating death of Muslim man

Last month, members of the HYV barged into a house in Meerut and allegedly roughed up a Muslim man and a woman belonging to another faith after they were found together.

The decision has come a day after members of the Hindu Yuva Vahini allegedly lynched an elderly Muslim man in Bulandshahr area of Uttar Pradesh.

After the incident, tension is prevailing in the village. "Seven persons reportedly attacked the deceased but not a single person belonged to the Hindu Yuva Vahini", Vivek Singh, the Meerut range in charge of the HYV, told The Hindu.

Before he became chief minister, Adityanath had been a five-term federal legislator with Modi's Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party and was known for making incendiary statements attacking India's minority Muslim community.

Sharma said the victim's family had reported threats to local Muslims from members of Hindu Yuva Vahini (HYV), a hardline group founded by Adityanath, since the controversial marriage.

According to reports, Ghulam Mohammad was the neighbour of the 19-year-old boy who eloped with an 18-year-old girl from an adjoining village a few days ago.

The spokesman of the Hindu Yuva Vahini, P.K. Mall, denied that any members of Adityanath's youth force had been involved in the attack.

FIR against six Hindu Yuva Vahini members for murdering Muslim man

They started beating up Yusuf's distant relative Ghulam Mohammad on the suspicion that he knew the whereabouts of the couple who had disappeared on April 27, the release said.

Zareena told The Indian Express that the family had taken out a loan of Rs.5 lakh to send Yusuf to Saudi Arabia, but he was distant with his relatives after returning.

Three people have been arrested in connection with the murder.

In the complaint attached with the FIR, the assailants are said to have asked Ahmad to get the missing girl immediately and when he said that the villagers would need time, they took him away.

Even as Mohammad's family members pointed fingers at the right-wing outfit, the police have not taken the name of any individual although it named the organisation in its FIR.

Senior Superintendent of Police, Bulandshahr, Muniraj G said 15 teams had been formed and a manhunt launched to nab the other culprits.
