Suspected thief lynched in Gujarat

Ajmal Vahonia, 22, was beaten to death and his aide Bhadu Mathur seriously injured by a mob of around 30 persons in Gujarat’s Dahod district on Saturday on suspicion of having stolen mobile phones.

The two were thrashed by the mob near a shop.

The duo, who had criminal records of theft, robbery and rioting, had been released from prison recently.

The police have launched a probe and filed a murder case against a mob in Kali Mahudi village.

“We have registered the case,” a police inspector of Dahod said.

The accused are yet to be identified.

In a statement to the police, Mathur said he had met Vahonia in the jail where they were earlier lodged, a police official said.
