Palghar Lynching : Shame to Humanity

On April 16, 2020, three people including 2 monks (Sadhus) and a driver lost their lives due to mob lynching. The three deceased have been identified as Sushil Giri Maharaj (35) , Maharaj Kalpavriksha Giri (70) and driver Nilesh Telgade(30), residents of the Kandivali suburb of Mumbai. The trio had apparently rented a car to attend a funeral. Despite the lockdown, the three managed to reached Palghar, 120 km from Mumbai, where they were stopped by a demonic mob baying for their blood. The crowd suspected that the three men belonged to the child thief gang and launched an aggressive assault against them. Later, when the police recovered the three men and took them to the hospital, they were pronounced dead on arrival.
