In India a fanatic mob stabbed a Muslim teenager to death on suspicion of carrying beef.

15 years old Junaid Khan was travelling from New Delhi on Friday with three of his brothers when a fight erupted over seats.

Between 15 and 20 men pulled out knives and set upon the brothers while making Anti-Muslim comments and insisting one of the packets they were carrying contained beef.

Police said Junaid Khan was stabbed to death, his brother Shakir sustained injuries on the throat, chest and hands.

Police have arrested one of the accused and further investigation is underway.

The incident is the latest such attack by Hindu vigilantes in India, where there have been a spate of assaults against Muslims and low-caste Dalits.
