Cow vigilantes have struck again in Alwar, where a Muslim man identified as Ummar was shot dead by unknown assailants in the wee hours of November 10. Police have not registered an FIR until now.
Police have so far not given any statement concerning the unfortunate incident that took place in Fahari village near Govindh Gadh in Alwar district of Rajasthan.
According to media reports the killers did not just stop after shooting Ummar. They put the body at the railway tracks so as to make it look like an accident.

The relatives of Ummar alleged police presence at the scene of the crime. The left limb and the head got severed but the rest of the body with bullets is intact.
As per Sher Muhammad, the family members of deceased Ummar are not willing to take his body for burial because they want to make sure that justice is served.
Earlier in April this year another case of cow related death surfaced when diary farmer Pehlu Khan died due to injuries sustained as a result of an assault by the vigilantes.
All the six accused were given clean chit by the investigating team. Ummar is survived by a wife and eight children.
