Father-son duo face mob music for playing ‘vulgar’ music

After a youth was shot dead and five others were injured in a fracas over the loud music being played by a DJ during a marriage procession in Kaithal on Saturday night, a 60-yr-old man and his 40-yr-old son were left seriously injured in Sirsa on Sunday for playing 'obscene and vulgar' songs on their mobile phones.

Babu Singh (60) and his son Jagseer Singh (40) were attacked and pelted with bricks by a mob in Faggu village. According to the police, both were admitted to the hospital and sustained severe head and facial injuries.

"As per villagers, Babu Singh and Jagseer used to play loud and vulgar music on their mobile phones. A few villagers had been objecting to that, but both failed to pay any heed. Today morning, when both were taking a walk in the village while listening to music on their mobile phones at high pitch, a group of villagers spotted them and started pelting bricks. We have recorded the statements of the injured and shall be acting as per the law," one of the investigating officers told The Indian Express.
