A 32-year-old Muslim man named Affan Abdul Ansari was brutally beaten to death on Saturday night by a Hindutva mob in Nashik.

Ansari, who hailed from Mumbai’s Kurla area, was accompanied by his friend Nasir Ghulam Hussain Qureshi and was travelling in a car when they were intercepted and attacked by the self-proclaimed cow vigilantes.

Nashik Rural deputy SP Sunil Bhamre, speaking to Lokmat Times, stated, “On reaching the spot, we found the car in a damaged condition. The injured men were inside the car and we admitted them to a nearby hospital where one of them died.”

Visuals shared by several Twitter handles show a car damaged and two youth bleeding lying on the road.

The police have taken ten people into custody thus far in connection with the incident. Bhamre mentioned, “Based on the complaint filed by the injured person, we have registered a case of murder and rioting and are currently investigating the matter.”

Meanwhile, Bhamre added that the meat in the car of two Muslim men has been sent for a forensic test “to find out if it was buffalo meat or beef.”

This hate crime occurred merely a week after another incident in the same district, where a 23-year-old Muslim man named Lukman Suleman Ansari was lynched by a Hindutva mob. The perpetrators in that case were affiliated with the Rashtriya Bajrang Dal (RBD), an organization founded by Praveen Togadia, the president of the Antarashtriya Hindu Parishad.
