India PM Narendra Modi condemns murder in cow’s name

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said murder in the name of cow protection is “not acceptable”. Many Hindus believe cows are sacred and killing them is banned in some states.

Hours after Mr Modi’s comments, a Muslim man was reportedly killed by a mob who accused him of transporting beef in his car.

On Wednesday, thousands of Indians took part in protests against rising attacks on Muslims and Dalits (formerly untouchables) by vigilante groups.

The latest victim, a 45-year-old man, was reportedly attacked by more than 100 people in the eastern state of Jharkhand.

Pictures on social media showed him being beaten as meat lay strewn on the road and his car was enveloped by flames. He died in hospital.
