    Sources said that the two men - Ummar Khan and Tahir Khan - were transporting the cows to Haryana when they were waylaid by the mob and assaulted.

    While Umar Khan died of a bullet wound. His body was kept in a mortuary. Tahir, an aide of Khan, is undergoing treatment at a private hospital in neighboring Haryana after suspected cow vigilantes trashed him.

    Relatives of the two men alleged that the crime was planned and policemen too were present when the crime took place.

    The police, however, said there were three persons in the pickup truck which was driven by one Jawed Khan who managed to flee.

    The police said they had recovered an abandoned pick-up truck earlier on November 10. It was carrying six cows, one of which had died. The ones alive had their feet and mouth tied. The tyres of the truck had been removed, said Rahul Prakash, a senior police officer from Alwar.

    The latest incident comes months after Pehlu Khan, a dairy farmer, was brutally beaten to death by cow vigilantes on April 5.

    In September, the Rajasthan police had given a clean chit to the six people named in the Pehlu Khan lynching incident.

    It may be recalled that PM Narendra Modi had warned that strict action will be taken against cow vigilantes, but that did not stop such groups from assaulting people they suspect randomly.
