Suspecting that he had stolen a cauliflower, a mob beat up a physically-challenged man in Bihar's Sitamari district, the police said on 24 October. The man succumbed to his injuries.

The incident took place on 22 October  at Khoprahiya village.

A group of people accused 55-year-old Dular Rai of stealing the vegetable from a field and beat him up mercilessly, senior police officer Veer Chirendra Kumar said.


A grievously-injured Rai was taken to a health centre, where he was declared brought dead, the officer said.

Following a complaint by his family, an FIR has been registered. Investigation is underway and efforts are on to identify the accused, the officer said.
