Four men have been taken into custody since then by the Levies, Barkhan Deputy Commissioner Qurban Ali Magsi said. The victim, identified as Sardar Khan, was accused of stealing a motorbike and was caught by a mob who beat him up, shaved his head, eyebrows and beard and blackened his face. They then posted pictures and videos of him on social media. A case was registered against them yesterday (Saturday), said the deputy commissioner.
