Jaipur: A 30-year-old man was beaten to death in Rajasthan’s Hanumangarh district for having a relationship with a divorced woman, police said on Friday. A video that showed the victim being attacked by a few people with sticks, was also circulated on social media, according to police.
Jagdish, a resident of Prempura in Pilibanga, was thrashed by a few people, including the woman’s ex-husband, Mukesh. Mukesh confronted Jagdish, also divorced, when he went to meet his children and found Jagdish with his ex-wife on Thursday.
Furiously, he called a few of his friends and took Jagdish to an open field where he was beaten with sticks. “They took him to an open field and hit him with sticks. A video of the incident was also shot. After thrashing him badly, they took him to his home on a motorcycle from Suratgarh to Pilibanga and left him there,” police said. Jagdish died at home.
Police detained Mukesh and another person accused in the case, from Suratgarh on Thursday night after a complaint was filed. A search for other culprits is on.
