MADHYA PRADESH: Three Muslims including a lady were severely thrashed by Hindu mob over rumours of carrying beef in Seoni city of Madhya Pradesh.

The video of the incident has gone viral. In the video, Hindu extremists self-claimed gau rakhshaks (cow vigilantes) could be seen hitting the young Muslims with sticks.

Muslim man beaten by the mob was later forced to thrash his wife with slipper and say Jai Shree Ram.

According to police, five suspected men have been arrested from Seoni city, 350 km from state capital Bhopal.

The Muslims who were thrashed have been identified as local residents Dilip Malviya, Taufik and Anjum Shama.

Former chief minister Indian occupied Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti took to Twitter to condemn the incident. She says "Horrified to see cow vigilantes thrash an innocent Muslim with such impunity in MP. Hope the Chief Minister will take a swift action against these goons."
