NEW DELHI – A mob of cow vigilantes lynched a Muslim man to death and injured four others in a village of Uttar Pradesh’s Mathura on Wednesday.

The vigilantes attacked the victims, claiming that they were smuggling cows.

According to a video by Abstar News, a priest from Barsana Ashram, confessed that he was present at the spot, where the brutal lynching took place.

“I got a call at 3:30 in the morning that a group of men were smuggling cows. I and another man left on a motorcycle to the location.”

The five survivors of the attack were admitted to the district hospital for treatment.

The police said half a dozen cattle were recovered from the scene and vehicles had been seized.

In a video tweeted by Mathura Police, SP rural Shirish Chand called the incident ‘clash’ and said that action would be taken in connection with cow smuggling.

He was further quoted by Hindustan Times as saying that the four companions of the deceased are in police custody and that they have been referred to the district hospital for treatment.

Chand further claimed that the victims opened fire on the villagers. In retaliation, villagers fired at them and allegedly killed the Muslim man.
