Mohammed Kaamil's father is reluctant to let his sons, cattle traders, out on business. Last month, Kaamil's brother Afraz was allegedly beaten up in the national capital by some people who left him off after taking away his money and phone. A few days later, on 22 April, it was Kaamil's turn. He was on his way to Ghazipur Mandi in east Delhi when some cars forced his truck to stop on a busy Kalkaji road. Kaamil and two men, Rizwan, 25 and Ashu, 28, were pulled out of the truck and thrashed by the mob angry that they were smuggling cows for slaughter.
