Akbar Khan, a resident of Kolgaon in Haryana, and another man were taking two cows to their village through a forest area when attacked.
A 28-year-old man was allegedly lynched by a group of people on suspicion that he was smuggling cows in Rajasthan’s Alwar district, a police official said today.
Akbar Khan, a resident of Kolgaon in Haryana, and another man were taking two cows to their village through a forest area near Lalawandi village in Alwar district last night, when a group of people severely thrashed Khan, Ramgarh police station SHO Subhash Sharma said.
Sharma said the people suspected Khan was smuggling cows. The allegation is yet to be verified, he said.
The other man with Khan managed to escape, he added.
Khan was rushed to a government hospital in Ramgarh, where doctors declared him brought dead.
The body has been kept at a mortuary in Alwar, the SHO said. A post-mortem is expected to be conducted after Khan’s family members reach the hospital.
It was just last year that a dairy farmer, Pehlu Khan, was lynched in Alwar, also on the suspicion of cow smuggling.
A case has been registered against unidentified people under IPC Section 302, the officer said.”-With PTI inputs
