A lynch mob beat a 23-year old journalism student in Pakistan, shot him and still continued to hit the lifeless body of the boy with sticks.

The incident happened in Abdul Wali Khan University in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, where a group of students murdered the 23-year old Mashal Khan, a student at the University’s journalism department. The reason being, that Mashal Khan had been accused of running Facebook pages which allegedly published blasphemous content, however there has been no concrete proof of such yet.

Around 59 students were arrested for being suspected of involved in the lynching, and the University has been temporarily shut down.

One of Mashal Khan’s professor said Mashal was brilliant and inquisitive, always complaining about the political system of the country, but I never heard him saying anything controversial against the religion.
