4 arrested for attack on Muslim women over beef rumour

28live5Mandsaur: Police in Madhya Pradesh has arrested 4 suspects who had beaten two women for allegedly carrying beef in Mandsaur, MP.

A mob slapped, punched and kicked two Muslim women on suspicion they were carrying beef in Madhya Pradesh, an incident that spurred the Opposition to attack the BJP-led government at the Centre in Parliament over increasing violence by cow vigilantes.

A veterinary test later revealed the 30kg of meat seized from the women at Mandsaur railway station on Tuesday was buffalo and not beef, state home minister Bhoopendra Singh said on Wednesday.
