In another case of the ongoing beef controversy in the country, a 40-year-old man, accused of carrying beef was beaten up by four men in Nagpur’s Bharsingi area on Wednesday.
According to the police, Ismail Shah was travelling in his two-wheeler when he was stopped by four men and accused of carrying beef. Shah kept on saying the meat was not beef but they refused to hear him.
