 Indian police have detained six people over the death of a Muslim man

 

Police in India have detained six people over the death of a Muslim man severely beaten by purported Hindu extremists over rumors that his family had eaten beef. 
Mohammad Akhlaq, 50, was dragged out of his house on the suburbs of the Indian capital, New Delhi, and was assaulted by some 100 people, a police officer said. 
Akhlaq’s 22-year-old son was also critically wounded in the attack and was taken to the Intensive Care Unit at a nearby hospital. 
The rumor that the family had eaten beef spread after a calf was reported missing in Dadri village, 35 kilometers from the capital.
