He demanded to know why police took three hours before victim was taken to a hospital which was just a few kilometers from the lynching spot.
Meanwhile there are reports that union home minister Rajnath Singh is expected to hold urgent meeting to deal with the menace of mobs going berserk and killing innocent people merely on suspicion.
Akbar Khan alias Rakbar Khan was killed in Rajasthan’s Alwar district where last year a dairy owner Pehlu Khan was mercilessly beaten to death by the mob on suspicion of smuggling cows for slaughter. Rakbar Khan and his friend Aslam were targeted when they were taking home a couple of cows after buying from a nearby village.
Rakbar Khan and Aslam, the residents of Haryana, were walking through a forest area whey they were attacked by locals in Lallawandi village. The attacked with sticks and stones and kicked and rained blows on the two men. Aslam managed to escape while Rakbar Khan was beaten up till he stopped moving.
Rakbar died in police custody, which took three hours and 45 minutes before he was taken to a hospital early on Saturday. The policemen were reportedly busy in arranging vehicles to take the seized cows to a shelter, visited the police station- a stone’s throw from the hospital- and even took a tea break before taking the victim to the hospital.
