BAREILLY: In a shocking incident, a man was beaten and his 20-year-old son was injured by neighbours for allegedly "talking to friends from another community".

Shahrukh Sheikh, who is an embroidery worker, was attacked and badly beaten up while he was talking to his friends. When Shahrukh's father, Mohammad Sartaj, tried to rescue his son, he was also beaten till he fell unconscious and later succumbed to his injuries in hospital.

Said Shahrukh: "When my neighbour Rashid Khan and three other people namely Ashu Khan, Fayyam, and Fazil, started cursing at us and beating us up without cause, I was talking to two friends outside my home. My friends got away in some way. My father was brutally attacked with hockey sticks when he arrived to save me." He said that his brother works with people from another community and they often visit his house.

Daud, Shahrukh's elder brother said, "My family never raised any objection to their visit but our neighbour Rashid had threatened us with dire consequences if we did not break ties with them. We want strict action against all the accused." 

Baradari police  have registered an FIR under section 304 (culpable homicide) against four persons. The police also recorded the statements of witnesses. No arrest has been made yet.
