    A day after a 35-year-old man's murder by alleged cow vigilantes was reported, Rajasthan Home Minister on Monday said that the state machinery does not have enough manpower to control every situation in all cities in time.

    Cow vigilantes allegedly shot dead a 35-year-old man, and critically injured his fellow passenger in Rajasthan's Alwar last week. Ummar Khan's body was found on the railway tracks on Friday evening.

    Gulab Chand Kataria, Rajasthan Home Minister, said, "It can't yet be said what is actually the case. We are sure the case will be solved soon and the culprit will be punished."

    "Police are investigating and other culprits will soon be arrested," he said.

    Social worker Maulana Haneef claimed that Khan, along with two others, was ferrying cattle in a vehicle when unidentified men opened fire at them. Khan died on the spot.

    Haneef said that the incident came months after the killing of Pehlu Khan, a dairy farmer from Nuh district of Haryana.

    In April this year, 55-year-old Pehlu Khan was lynched by suspected cow vigilantes in Alwar while he was transporting cattle, triggering a nationwide outrage.

    The Mewat region is known for rearing cows and now "self-proclaimed cow sympathisers" of various right-wing outfits are targeting those who rear cows, the social activist said.
