Ummar Muhammad and Tahir Khan - again cattle traders - were transporting cows from Mewat in Haryana to Bharatpur in Rajasthan, when they were stopped in the Fahari village near Alwar district.
New Delhi:Janata Dal United (JD-U) leader Sharad Yadav on Tuesday said lynching of a dairy farmer by cow vigilantes in Rajasthan was "unfortunate" and criticised the Centre for failing to control the menace. His family alleged that he was shot dead by cow vigilantes when he was ferrying cattle in a vehicle. These men who have been arrested are self-proclaimed gau rakshaks. The police suspect that the crowd had attacked Umar Khan and two others under the impression that they were smuggling cows.
Hardline Hindu groups have gained prominence since Prime Minister Narendra Modi's nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party came to power in 2014, and the protection of cows, considered holy by many in the Hindu-majority country, is a priority for them.
