By Tommy Wilkes and Malini Menon NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday broke his silence over a wave of attacks on people accused of eating beef or slaughtering cows, saying that killing in the name of an animal sacred to majority Hindus was wrong. Modi was speaking a week after a 16-year old Muslim boy was stabbed to death on a train on suspicion of possessing beef, the latest of an estimated 28 people killed in cow-related violence since 2010. Most of the victims were killed after Modi and his Hindu nationalist party won elections three years ago.
