The newspaper claims that three men broke into the house of Anilkumar Nishad and stole a mobile phone, according to local police.

Two of the 'thieves' escaped but local residents caught up with one of the three, tied him to an electric pole, stripped and beat him and left him to die, says the report.

According to police, the man had died of injuries, especially to his groin.

Mob fury is what took the life of Akhlaq Saifi, 52, in Dadri last September. The man was lynched shortly after he had his dinner the night of 28 September because a mob suspected that he stored beef in his refrigerator at home.

Barely a week ago, a Pune teenager Sawan Rathod was burnt to death after he admitted he was 'Hindu'.
