Aligarh: Two persons were arrested on Friday for allegedly beating up their neighbour for “reciting Bhagwad Gita” at his residence.

According to police, Dilsher Khan was reciting from the Bhagvad Gita when Mohammad Sameer (20) and Zakir (21) entered his house and beat him up.

 

Sameer and Zakir were send to judicial custody by a local court on Friday.

The police said Khan recited holy books Bhagvad Gita and Ramayana every morning and both of them had objected to this several times.
