New Delhi: A man accused of carrying beef was allegedly beaten to death by a mob in Jharkhand’s Ramgarh district on Thursday.

This happened hours after Prime Minister Modi said that killing people in the name of cow protection is not acceptable.

IANS quoted police sources saying that Alimuddin alias Asgar Ansari was carrying the "banned meat" in a Maruti van.

A group of people stopped him near Bajartand village and brutally attacked him, the sources said. His van was set on fire too.

Police personnel dispersed the mob and took him to a hospital where he died during the course of treatment. "It's premeditated murder," Additional Director General of Police R K Mallik told IANS.

Tension escalated in the area after a police team returned with the dead body and a crowd gathered outside the Ramgarh police station.

Earlier in the day, PM Narendra Modi, in a function in Gujarat, had said: "Killing people in the name of gau bhakti is not acceptable. This is not something Mahatma Gandhi would approve of.” The PM added that no one will be allowed to take the law into their hands.

On Wednesday, Thousands turned up in Delhi and four other cities across the country holding aloft placards as a part of the #NotInMyName demonstrations calling for an end to the lynching of innocent Muslims by mobs of cow vigilantes.
