Mubarak Khan, a 27-year-old driver, was beaten to death by a group of men in Sirka village, 30 kilometres to the east of Ranchi, the capital of Jharkhand, media reports citing police officials said.

Police officials, in initial media reports, have said that Mubarak was caught trying to steal the battery and tyres of a motorcycle. 

The police said they have registered a case of murder in Angara police station and have opened the investigation. “We have filed an FIR under section 302 and are working on it,” Naushad Alam, Superintendent of Police, Ranchi Rural, told Clarion India over the phone. “We have to also maintain law and order. The process has started and we have sent the body for post mortem.”

The report said that police have named at least 17 men as accused in the case while trying to establish the identities of several others.

According to the report, the relatives and neighbours of Mubarak have refuted such reports saying that it was a “pre-planned murder” as he was called to the spot and then beaten to death.

“They (the alleged murderers) called him at around 11 in the night while he was at his home making an omelette for dinner,” Zakir Khan said, as quoted by the Clarion.

“He went there quickly but they tied him to a pole and beat him until he passed away.”

According to the report, Zakir questioned the stealing allegations claiming that the accused planted a battery and a jack of a four-wheeler at the spot of the murder.

“Why would a thief use a four-wheeler jack for a two-wheeler.” Zakir said, as quoted by the report.
