In yet another incident, a 16-year-old Muslim boy was thrashed by a mob for wearing a skull cap and refusing to chant “Jai Shri Ram” in Kanpur. The incident occurred on Friday when Mohammad Taj, a resident of Barra, was returning home after offering namaz in Kidwai Nagar.

Police said that three to four unidentified men on motorbikes overtook and stopped Taj a few metres away from his home. The group objected to him wearing the skull cap.
