While the country is fighting a battle with the deadly coronavirus, three people were lynched and killed in a village near Palghar in Maharashtra.
According to media reports, they were from Mumbai and were going to Surat to attend a funeral. On the way, they were lynched to death by a huge mob of villagers on suspicion of being child thieves. One of them was a driver, while two were sadhus. They were identified as Nilesh Telgane, Sushilgiri Maharaj, Chikane Maharaj Kalpavrikshgiri respectively.
After the incident was exposed, people on social media expressed their anger. Bollywood celebs like Anupam Kher, Farhan Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap and Swara Bhaskar have also expressed their anger on the matter.
Swara Bhaskar took to Twitter to strongly condemn the incident and tweeted, “Highly condemnable! A shameful reflection of who we are as a society. Maybe a time for reflection.. when you breed a culture Violence & normalise mob justice on streets.. it comes home one day… this is a disease in our society allowed to fester & become a monster!”
