After a Muslim man was beaten to death in Rajasthan’s Alwar by a mob of cow vigilantes on Saturday, an MLA belonging to the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today said such lynchings will not stop till cow slaughtering ends and called for a law against it.
“These lynching cases won’t stop until cow slaughtering stops. There should be a law against it. According to the media, the person who died was a cow trafficker,” BJP MLA T Raja Singh was quoted by news agency ANI.
Twenty-nine-year-old Rakbar Khan was lynched in Alwar on July 21 by a mob of cow protectors who accused him of smuggling cows.
Meanwhile, authorities are investigating whether there was negligence and manhandling of Khan that eventually led to his death. According to various reports, Rakbar was allegedly beaten up by the cops before taking to the hospital. Some reports also claim that the police took three hours to take the victim to the hospital.
