4 youths stripped, tied, hit with belts by cow vigilantes in India

The incident took place in Gir Somnath, about 400 km from Ahmedabad.

"Where did you get the cow skin?" one of the attackers is heard demanding. Later the third grade, the attackers are seen tying up the men to a car and thrashing them brutally with sticks on their naked back.
