Alwar (Rajasthan), Sep 07 (ANI): The Alwar police on Friday charged three men linked to the murder of Rakbat Khan, who was brutally beaten by a mob on suspicion of cow smuggling that eventually led to his death.
"A 25-page charge sheet along with supporting documents have been submitted before Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM) Court, Ramgarh in which three have been charged with murder. The probe is on, under our supervision at the ACJM court," Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Ashok Chauhan told ANI.
The role of the police in the entire incident was also under the scanner after they reportedly made a delay of three hours in taking the 28-year-old victim to the hospital.
Rakbar Khan, a resident of Haryana and his friend Aslam, were transporting two cows to Kolgaon through a forest area when the mob had attacked them thinking they were taking the animals for slaughter. While his friend Aslam managed to survive as he hid in the fields, Rakbar Khan died. (ANI)
