A person was reportedly beaten up by a mob on suspicion of carrying beef in Nagpur's Bharsingi village. The incident took place on Wednesday at 11.30 a.m, reports ANI.

An India Today report says four people have been detained in connection with the case. Salim Ismail Shah, 36, was thrashed with rods and sticks by a few men said to be members of a group named - Prahar Sanghatan. The fringe group is allegedly linked to local MLA Bachu Kadu.

The latest incident in Nagpur adds to the long list of such unprovoked attack on people accused of carrying beef across the country.

Last month, a teenager - Junaid - was killed and his cousins were thrashed in a train by a mob which accused them of carrying beef. The incident took place when they were returning home in Ballabhgarh, Haryana, from Delhi by a local train after Eid shopping.

Days later the horrific incident, a 200-strong mob beat up a Muslim man and set his house on fire after a dead cow was found outside his home in Jharkhand's Giridih district
