VHP men turn out to be main culprit in Alwar lynching
Alwar : In a new twist to Alwar lynching case, police cops have been found to be secondary as VHP men are found to be the main culprit in the case. 28-year-old Rakbar Khan, a dairy farmer by profession, was allegedly killed on Saturday by violent Gau Rakshaks.
On Monday, Rajasthan Police set up a high level team to probe what took policemen 4 hours to take badly injured man to the hospital barely 4 kilometers from the incident site.
An Assistant Sub-Inspector was suspended for the undue delay and action taken against four constables.
The team met his relatives, spoke to local residents and policemen to thoroughly investigate the matter.
Special Director General N.R.K. Reddy said police reached the location of the incident on time but failed to gauge the extent of injuries sustained by the victim. He also added that police first took the cows to a "gaushala" (cow shelter) and then took the victim to hospital where he was declared brought dead. "Rakbar alias Akbar died due to serious internal injuries and further investigations are on in the case," he said.
