A video showing a mob brutally thrashing men for allegedly transporting cows in Rajasthan’s Alwar has gone viral on social media. The video shows a man slumped on the road unconscious.
Two days after the attack, Pehlu Khan, 55, died in a hospital on Tuesday. According to police, 10 persons have been arrested in the case.
Pehlu Khan, who belonged to Haryana, and his four associates were assaulted even after reportedly producing documents to prove that they had bought the cows from a "Pashu Mela" in Jaipur. The mob dragged them out of their pick-up truck.
The group of self-appointed alleged cow vigilantes can be seen chasing and beating up the group on a highway. Pehlu Khan's associated are still in hospital.
"Police got information that some people are smuggling cows from Jaipur and are headed to Delhi. Behrod police caught some trucks and some trucks escaped, these trucks were forced stopped by public and the drivers were beaten by the public," said a senior police officer, Paras Jain, claiming that 10 people have been arrested for murder.
