Hindu radicals 'torture, hang to death' two Muslim cattle traders in Jharkhand

The deceased, identified as Muhammad Majloom, 35 and Azad Khan, were found hanging from a tree at Balumath forests in Latehar district, 100km from capital Ranchi, in the wee hours on Friday.

Two Muslim men on way to a Friday market with their buffaloes were tortured and hanged to death in Jharkhand allegedly by Hindu radicals, a media report said.

The deceased, identified as Muhammad Majloom, 35 and Azad Khan, were found hanging from a tree at Balumath forests in Latehar district, 100km from capital Ranchi, in the wee hours on Friday. 

The buffaloes were freed by the men and locals claimed the assailants were Hindu radicals, reported The Times of India. 

The two had their hands tied together behind and their mouth was closed with a cloth. "The sight suggested that the two of them were subjected to extreme levels of brutality. It means that the assailants were moved by extreme hatred," a police officer said.
