NEW DELHI – Six people were thrashed by a mob in Delhi for allegedly carrying buffalo calves, the ANI reported.

The mob also reportedly vandalised the vehicles in which the calves were being carried. Delhi Police has registered an FIR and is currently investigating the scene, ANI reported.

The attack comes just a week after Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned cow vigilantes from resorting to violence.

PM Modi’s response had come after a spate of lynchings in the country, some at the hands of cow vigilante groups. In a recent incident, a 15-year old boy Junaid Khan was stabbed to death on a train in Haryana.
