Seven months after Pehlu Khan, a dairy farmer who was lynched by cow vigilantes in Alwar, two Muslim men were allegedly beaten up and fired at by unidentified men while they were transporting a cow from Alwar to Bharatpur.
One of the two Muslim men, identified as Ummar Khan, has died while the other, Tahir, is undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Haryana. The incident took place on Saturday night when the two men were taking the cow in a pick-up truck from Alwar to Ghatmika village in Bharatpur district.
The deceased’s body has been kept in the mortuary at Rajiv Gandhi General Hospital in Alwar. As the news of the incident spread, people of the Meo community reached the hospital and identified Ummar.
The Meo community alleged that right-wing organisations in collusion with the police thrashed the two Muslim men and fired at them.
The community members have demanded a high-level probe into the alleged incident while a report is yet to be registered.
