According to Hindustan Times Bangla. A man named Tufan Sheikh was beaten up on the allegations of dropping cow meat in multiple temple premises. The report says, Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Shantanu Hazra told the media, ‘Beef has been dumped in some temple premises in Margram. I will not go into the debate whether it was dropped intentionally or unintentionally. It hurt the Hindu sentiments, also the administration is targeting Hindus and not taking FIRs. Their complaints are not being heard. So Vishwa Hindu Parishad came to give a memorandum to SDPO. He assured us of legal cooperation. He promised, such an incident will not happen again.
