Suspected Cow Smuggler Beaten up by Mob in Rajasthan
An alleged cow smuggler was beaten up by a mob in Shahjahapur area of Rajasthan's Alwar district, the police said on Monday, 23 September.
On a tip off that cows were being smuggled in two jeeps, police had put up barricades on Sunday night.
While one of the jeeps managed to dodge police teams, a group of villagers managed to stop another jeep carrying 6-7 bovines in Fusa ki Dhani where they thrashed one of the suspected smugglers identified as Munfed Khan, they said.
Khan was then admitted to a hospital in Shahjahapur.
This comes a day after three villagers were assaulted by a mob in Jharkhand’s Khunti district on cow slaughter allegations. While, one of them succumbed to his injuries, the other two have been admitted to a hospital with seven injuries.
