Cow smuggler killed by suspected cow protection vigilantes in India

The 35-year-old man's body was found on railway tracks in Rajasthan's Alwar and relatives have alleged that he was shot dead and dumped on the tracks for transporting cattle.

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.

"The attackers were basically anti-social elements who attacked Umar and two other passengers of the pickup as they were smuggling cows".

Police said it was so mangled that they could not confirm whether it had bullet injuries.

Until now, the police had denied any connection between the killing of Umar Mohammed, whose body was found on railway tracks in Alwar's Ramgarh on early Friday, and the recovery of a badly damaged pickup van with cows about 15 km away the same day. "Later a body was found, which a family claimed belonged to its member. The body has been sent for postmortem and a suspect was also arrested yesterday", he said. However, speaking of the incident, Rajasthan Home Minister passed an insensitive comment and said that the state does not have enough manpower to control every situation.

"It can't yet be said what is actually the case". "Who has given the cow vigilantes the right to take the law into own hands".

Focus on cow protection, especially by vigilante groups, has risen since the BJP-led government took power three years ago, and several states ruled by the party made laws to punish cow slaughter.

"We want the person named - Rakesh as mentioned by Tahir, the man who was successful in escaping the bloody madness of the police and the Gaurakshaks", demanded the human rights organization. "He was killed brutally", Khan's uncle told news agency ANI in Alwar.

Cow vigilantes are known to patrol the roads in Alwar and neighbouring districts at night and waylay bovine transporters, mostly smugglers from Muslim-dominated Meo region.

Maulana Hanif, vice president of Jamait-Ul- Rajasthan, said that the body was disfigured "to remove evidence. The family members recognised Ummar with the help of his slippers", Sher Muhammad said.

There has been another, less noted dimension to the violence: The theft from Muslims and redistribution to Hindus of cows that provide crucial income in the Indian countryside.
