In a shocking incident, two men and a woman were allegedly thrashed by self-proclaimed gau rakshaks in Madhya’s Seoni. The self-proclaimed gau rakshaks had gotten a tip-off that two Muslim youths and a woman, who were traveling in an auto, were carrying beef. In the video played by Times Now channel, the group is seen asking the man to touch their feet and chant Jai Shri Ram. The victims alleged that they were forced to say 'Jai Shree Ram' slogans by the accused.
According to the police, three individuals were arrested in March for possessing beef. However, a video later surfaced showing them being beaten up by the alleged members of Sri Ram Sena. In the video, the gau rakshaks held the youths to a tree one by one and beat them up mercilessly as the onlookers stood by.

"This is how Muslims are treated by Vigilantes created by Modi voters welcome to a New India which will Inclusive and as @PMOIndia said Secularism Ka Niqaab," he tweeted.
