Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said that he would take stern action. Let's see what stern action he would take," Lalu said. Recently , Prime Minister Modi had sent a stern message to the cow vigilantes amid the growing incident of mob lynching and said nobody has the right to take law in his/her hand in name of cow protection. "Killing people in the name of Gau Bhakti is not acceptable," said PM Modi. "No person in this nation has the right to take the law in his or her own hands in this country," he added. Three men on Thursday were allegedly thrashed by locals in Bihar's Bhojpur over suspicion of carrying beef in a truck. The police also took three people into custody and also confiscated their truck. The locals alleged that illegal slaughterhouses have been operating in the area for past few months. The locals also blocked NH 84 and staged a protest.
