Police and cow vigilantes are hand in glove: Alwar MP
New Delhi, July 24: Congress parliamentarian from Alwar blamed Rajasthan Police for being accomplice in the lynching incident. Yadav alleged that the police played a suspicious role in the lynching.
Karan Singh Yadav, Congress MP from Alwar, said, "Police and cow vigilantes are hand in glove in this matter. It was the duty of the police to take him to hospital immediately. Police has played a suspicious role. This is a case of not only mass lynching but also custodial death."
He blamed the Bharatiya Janata party (BJP) for indulging in communal politics. "BJP indulges in such kind of politics. They make a Hindu-Muslim issue, fuel tensions a few days before election & try to win using issue of cows. Situation is the same today. It is known that cow vigilantes are protected by them," Yadav said.
The Rajasthan police has set up a high-level committee to probe the allegations of delay against the Alwar police in taking Akbar Khan to a hospital after he was allegedly lynched by a group of people on the suspicion of cow smuggling. It is alleged that when the incident happened in Lalawandi village in Alwar, it took over two-and-a-half hours for the police to take the victim to the Ramgarh Community Healthcare Centre, which is nearly 4 km away.
