Maharashtra: Two men assaulted by cow vigilantes in Malegaon for allegedly selling beef

The police have arrested nine people in connection with the incident, but booked the victims as well.

Two men were beaten up by cow vigilantes in Maharashtra’s Washin district for allegedly selling beef, ANI reported on Monday. A video of the incident in Malegaon shows a group of men violently assaulting a man.

The video has gone viral on social media platforms. The incident is believed to have taken place on May 26.

The police have arrested nine men in connection with the incident. However, the victims have also been booked under sections of the Indian Penal Code pertaining to the sale and consumption of beef.

The police said the men attacked by the cow vigilantes were selling beef, reported NDTV. Sale of beef is banned in the state. The police have sent samples of the meat found on them for forensic tests.

The incident took place on the same day that the Centre banned the sale of all kinds of cattle for slaughter at animal markets across the country.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
