New Delhi, July 24: The postmortem report on Tuesday revealed that the Alwar Mob Lynching victim Akbar, alias Rakbar Khan died due to shock.
The report also said that the victim suffered fractures in at least one hand, one leg and ribs. Also, he had injury marks on at least twelve body parts.
Akbar, a resident of Haryana and was transporting two cows along with an associate, Aslam Khan, when a group of people allegedly stopped them on July 20. While Rakbar was thrashed on suspicion of cow smuggling and Aslam managed to escape.
The Rajasthan police reportedly took three-hours in taking Alwar lynching victim to the hospital which was around 4 km away from Lalawandi.
Following the reports of a delay, Rajasthan DGP OP Galhotra yesterday constituted a team of senior police officials to investigate the case.
According to police and hospital records, the police received a call at 12.41 am on July 21 from Naval Kishore Sharma, chief of VHP’s Gau Raksha cell in Ramgarh, regarding a suspected case of cow smuggling, they took Sharma along to the incident spot, spotted an injured and muddied Rakbar, washed him, questioned him briefly on the spot, and then took him to the Ramgarh Community Health Centre (CHC), where he was declared brought dead.
On Monday Rajasthan Police suspended Assistant Sub-Inspector Mohan Singh for the undue delay in taking Akbar to the hospital.
The decision was taken after a video purportedly showing ASI Mohan Singh, who was posted at the Ramgarh police station, admitting to his “mistake”, went viral.
“Mere se galti hogai…kaise bhi maan lo..saja de do ya chhodh do…seedhi si baat hai(I made a mistake…punish me or pardon me…it is simple and straight),” the ASI could be heard purportedly saying in the viral video.
In connection with the incident, three persons- Dharmendra Yadav, Naresh Singh and Paramjeet Singh have been arrested so far.
