Raipur Rural police in Chhattisgarh have launched an investigation into the deaths of two cattle transporters, Chand Miya and Guddu Khan, allegedly following a mob attack. A special 14-member team, led by Additional Superintendent of Police Kirtan Rathore, has been constituted to solve the case and apprehend those responsible.

According to an FIR filed by Shoheb Khan, the transporters were chased by individuals on motorcycles and other vehicles while driving a truck loaded with buffaloes. After their truck suffered a burst tire, the mob reportedly began abusing and attacking them. While one person died on the spot, another succumbed to his injuries after being hospitalized.

The Raipur Rural police have registered cases under IPC sections 304, 307, and 34. The police, who are still questioning suspects, emphasized that preliminary investigations do not confirm a mob lynching. However, family members of the deceased insist that the transporters were indeed attacked by a mob.
