New Delhi: A man was beaten up and his house set on fire by a mob after they allegedly found a dead cow outside his house in Deori, Jharkhand.

Police said the mob attacked Usman Ansari after some people reported to have seen a cow carcass outside his house in Betia Hatianand village, around 200km from the capital Ranchi.

Police said the crowd started pelting stones and dispersed only after a few rounds were fired in the air. Ansari was admitted to a hospital and his condition was said to be stable.

Reacting to the attack, Congress spokesperson Tom Vadakkan said, “What is happening to human rights? The government is responsible for supporting these groups. You can’t attack a person just because a dead animal was found outside the house.”

CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury said, “This is mobocracy, not democracy.”

Several incidents of cow-related violence have been reported in the last few months.

On June 22, three people were lynched in West Bengal's North Dinajpur district after they were allegedly caught stealing cows from a house. The incident occurred on the same day as a teenager was stabbed to death, and his three brothers were injured by a group of people in a dispute over allegations of carrying beef on a train near Ballabhgarh in Haryana.
