Rajasthan, Oct 15, 2017: 51 cows belonging to a Muslim family in Alwar district of Rajasthan have been snatched, allegedly by the police and handed over to a village gaushala, on a complaint by some Hindu activists.
The incident took place over a week ago and since then, the family has been struggling to get back its flock.
The family which belong to the Meo community alleged that the police forcibly took away their 51 cows and handed them over to a gaushala. They further alleged that they have approached several government offices and police station to get back their cows, but continue to face disappointment.
However, to clearing its stance police has rejected the allegations and said that they had no role in it and said that the villagers drove the cow to the gaushala.
Just six months ago, 55-year-old dairy farmer, Pehlu Khan, belonging to the Meo community, was lynched in Alwar by cow vigilantes over suspicion of carrying beef.
This happened soon after a group of self-appointed cow vigilantes thrashed 5 men in Haryana’s Faridabad on a suspicion of carring a cow meet.
