Young Abdul Sattar was shot dead after being beaten by stones and sticks by an angry mob. He was accused of having close ties with a girl belonging from the local village.
As soon as the residents and relatives of the girl came to know about the vague accusation, they marched their way with sticks and stones in their hands to beat the boy.
The locals established their own court and decided to beat the boy to death.
