Tabrez Ansari

Tabrez Ansari (22) who was brutally thrashed by a mob at Dhatkidih village in Seraikela district on suspicion of stealing a bike on 17th June had died in a hospital.

The incident came to light after a video went viral in which the accused was seen beating Ansari.

Later, Ansari’s wife Shaista Parveen had lodged a complaint with the Seraikela police station, alleging he was caught by some people while he was on his way back on a bike from Jamshedpur. He was tied to a tree and beaten up brutally and also forced to chant ‘Jai Sri Ram’.

It may be mentioned that Ansari’s wife had questioned the role of the police in her husband’s death, alleging he was not given timely medical treatment.
