A 45-year-old man was allegedly lynched in the Palamu district of Jharkhand on Monday night for fishing at a local dam in his neighboring village.
Janeshwar Chaudhary, from the village of Bokya, under the Chainpur Police Station, was allegedly beaten by a group of men from the neighboring village of Katual who reportedly objected to Chaudhary fishing in his village’s dam, claiming that they had grown fish seeds in it and auctioned the crop in advance.
Chaudhary was later turned over in a wounded state to his family, who had been looking for him on Monday night.
Chainpur Police Station Chief Uday Kumar Gupta said a murder case had been recorded and that Binda Chaurasia, one of the four named defendants, was arrested. Three other defendants identified as Mansokh Chaurasia, Basisth Chaurasia and Arup Chaurasia were on the run.
“According to the initial investigation, late on Monday night, Janeshwar was fishing in the dam with some men. The defendant grabbed the deceased while others managed to flee. Apparently, he was beaten by them. Janeshwar developed complications after getting home and was rushed to hospital, but died shortly after, “Gupta said.
Police said they were waiting for his post-mortem report to determine the exact cause of death, as not many wound marks were visible on the body of the deceased.
“He could have died from an internal injury. We have arrested a Binda Chaurasia and we are conducting raids to arrest the other three defendants, “added Gupta.
