Godda (Jharkhand), June 13

Two men were lynched by villagers in Jharkhand's Godda district on suspicion of cattle theft, a senior district official said on Wednesday.

Deputy Commissioner Kiran Kumari Pasi said the two were beaten to death by people in a village in the Deodand police station area last night.

Four persons have been arrested in this connection, she said, adding a huge police force, along with a magistrate, has been deployed in the village.

The situation in the village is under control, the officer said.

According to police, Murtaza and his brother Chiraguddin were caught red-handed while stealing buffaloes at Bannkatti village of Godda, around 500 km from Ranchi, and villagers, who gathered at the spot, thrashed them brutally. Both died on the spot.

However, their father has claimed that they were cattle traders. — Agencies
