Man Burnt To Death For Stealing Amplifier From Mosque

A 30-year-old man was set ablaze in a mosque for stealing an amplifier.

The head of the local police’s criminal investigations, Rizal Marito, said the man was chased by an angry mob from a mosque in Bekasi district near the Indonesian capital before they later set him ablaze.
“The mosque’s caretaker shouted ‘Thief!’ and people chased him,” he said.
The man was caught about two kilometres from the mosque and beaten, with some people in the crowd pouring petrol on the man and setting him ablaze.

He died on the spot from injuries and severe burns.

Marito denied local media reports that the man was a technician who was taking out the amplifier for repair.

According to the police, the victim’s family will not press charges.
