CHENNAI: A Muslim man lynched by a mob at Aligarh over ten days ago has now been booked for dacoity.

The victim has been identified as Mohammad Farid (35).

Farid was beaten to death by a mob on June 18. A purported video of the incident went viral on social media, sparking widespread outrage.

The mob attacked him for alleged involvement in a theft case.

Farid's brother Zaki was quoted as saying by TOI that an FIR was filed against his dead brother under pressure from politicians and right-wing functionaries to divert attention from his brother's murder.
