Muslim man beaten to death by mob in Rajasthan's Alwar over suspicion of cow smuggling. Man named Akbar allegedly beaten to death by mob in Alwar's Ramgarh on Friday night on suspicion of cow smuggling, police investigation underway.
According to reports, the villagers in Ramgarh, caught the two men who were transporting cows on foot. The two were brutally beaten up and one of them died on the spot.
The Muslim man, Akbar Khan's killing over cow smuggling suspicion comes four days after the top court had asked the legislature to consider enacting a new penal provision to deal with mob violence and provide deterrent punishment to offenders.
No citizen can take the law into their hands and the government must act, said the Supreme Court on Tuesday. "In case of fear and anarchy, the state has to act positively," said Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra.
CJI Dipak Misra termed the incidents of mob lynching as "horrendous acts of mobocracy" and said the incidence has to be curbed with iron hands.
