Alwar: Man lynched on suspicion of cow smuggling, 2 arrested
It is still unclear whether Akbar was actually smuggling cows. The incident has been criticized. AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi said that cows in India has constitutional rights, but Muslims don’t. He said that four years of Modi rule was ‘lynch raj’.
The incidents of mobs lynching people on suspicion of cow smuggling have been reported in Alwar in the past too. One Pehlu Khan was lynched by a mob of cow vigilantes in Alwar’s Behror area on April 1 last year. His family members registered an FIR naming many people. It was alleged that Pehlu Khan didn’t have permission from authorities to transport animals. The vigilantes intercepted his vehicle and beat him and nearly 15 other people severely. He died while undergoing treatment. Other injured men were admitted to a hospital in Behror.
#Alwar में गो परिवहन से सम्बंधित वारदात में हुई नृशंस हत्या की मैं कड़े शब्दों में निंदा करती हूँ। पुलिस मामला दर्ज कर दो संदिग्ध व्यक्तियों से पूछताछ कर रही है। मैंने गृह मंत्री @GulabKataria जी को जल्द से जल्द मामले की छानबीन कर दोषियों को कड़ी सज़ा दिलाने के निर्देश दिए हैं।— Vasundhara Raje (@VasundharaBJP) July 21, 2018
