Supreme Cour to hear plea on Alwar lynching case

Offenses taking place despite the apex court verdict on cow vigilantism, allege Tehseen Poonawalla and Tushar Gandhi in their contempt pleas.

The Supreme Court on July 3 said incidents of cow vigilantism were unacceptable, and it was up to the states to prevent them, PTI reported. However, a bench led by Chief Justice Dipak Misra reserved its verdict on a petition seeking guidelines to curb cow vigilantism.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud said this was a law and order issue and each state has to be responsible.

Akbar Khan, 28, was allegedly lynched by a group of people who accused him of smuggling cows in Alwar. Khan and his friend Aslam were taking two cows to their village in Haryana through a forested area near Lalawandi in Alwar district on Friday night when five men attacked them. Three people have been arrested in the case.
