The incident had taken place at Gadchinchle village during the night on April 16, 2020, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic when two Sadhus were heading towards Surat from Mumbai in a car with a driver to attend a funeral. A mob of villagers stopped them and beat them to death on suspicion that they were child – lifters, even as a few police personnel had reached the spot. The BJP, then in opposition, had accused there was a conspiracy behind the attack on the religious leaders and demanded a CBI probe. Then home minister Anil Deshmukh had opposed the demand, saying killing took place as villagers mistook them to be child traffickers.
