Jaipur: Police force was deployed in Govindgarh in Alwar district after the police arrested three women of a family and recovered nearly 50 kg beef from their possession. The kingpin who was involved in killing cows for beef is reportedly on the run. There were reports of markets in Ramgarh being closed following the arrests. Police force has been deployed in the town to keep an eye on the law and order situation. Police officials however said that there was no tension in the town and police personnel have been deployed as a precautionary measure. On getting a tip-off about the sale of beef which is banned in the state, an Alwar police team raided the house of one Shakeel Khan in Govindgarh. Shakeel allegedly left home when he got a tip about the police raid. When the police arrived at the house, some women were allegedly packaging cow mean for selling them in the market. The women reportedly told the police that the men from the family were out to sell beef. The family had been involved in the trade for the past two years, according to preliminary reports. The police took three women into custody after preliminary interrogation. The three women were identified as Akbari, Bhuri and Sazeena. Local MLA Gyan Dev Ahuja demanded a strict action against the accused and immediate arrest of those at large. Alwar had recently hogged headlines when 28-year-old Rakbar alias Akbar allegedly died in police custody after he was beaten up by a mob of cow vigilantes. It was alleged that he was walking to his native village in Haryana with some cows when some vigilantes spotted him and thrashed him. A police team went to the spot and instead of taking injured Akbar to hospital, they brought him to the local police station where he was kept for three hours. It is alleged that Akbar died due to the delay in getting him medical attention.
