Alwar lynching: Man beaten to death on suspicion of smuggling cows.
Admitting there was a delay in taking Alwar lynch victim Akbar to a community health centre, the Rajasthan Police on Monday said a team of officers will present a detailed report after probing the incident. Akbar was lynched by villagers in Lalawandi on suspicion of smuggling cows on Friday.
The police allegedly took close to three hours to reach Ramgarh Community Health Centre, which is roughly four kilometres from the spot Akbar was lynched. The FIR registered in the case, however, mentions that Akbar was taken directly taken to the CHC, where he was declared brought dead.
The Indian Express on Monday, relying on local eyewitnesses, pieced together the chain of events on the night Akbar was lynched. It was learnt that the police had allegedly stopped to have tea, got his clothes changed at the police station, before taking him to the health centre. The police were acting on a complaint filed by one Naval Kishore Sharma, chief of VHP’s Gau Gau Raksha cell in Ramgarh.
