The death toll in the mob lynching incident in Tripura’s Khowai district on 20 June has risen to four with the recovery of the body of a missing Muslim man.

The body of Salim Hussain was found buried in a wooded area in North Maharanipur on Saturday afternoon, The Hindu reported.

The police has said that the body was found on basis of the confession of the accused persons.

The police has said that it has arrested three men as the investigation progressed. Sources said that the police swung into action after the State government asked the police to act tough against the accused.

“We have exhumed the body and sent it to for post-mortem,” the police officer said.

On 20 June, three youth, identified as Billai Mia (27), Zayed Hussain (28), and Saiful Islam (21), were branded cattle thieves by a Hindu mob before the trio were brutally beaten up and lynched by the mob in Khowai district in Tripura.

Billal, Zayed and Saiful were residents of Sunamura in Sepahijala district.
