Making a controversial comment a BJP MLA in Rajasthan said that “if one engages in cow smuggling or slaughters a cow, he will be killed.”
The Ramgarh MLA in Rajasthan while speaking on the arrest of alleged cow smuggler in Alwar district on Saturday said
“Mera toh seedha seedha kehna hai ki gautaskari aur gaukashi karoge to yu hi maroge (I will only say that if you smuggle and slaughter cows, then you will be killed).”
However, the man allegedly accused of smuggling cow has been identified as Zakir, who was beaten up by a mob before police arrested him.
MLA Ahuja also denied allegations that Zakir was beaten, he said,”. “As the public was following the truck, it overturned, resulting in the injuries… Now he is saying that villagers beat him up. I have taken details of the case from the SHO. The people didn’t beat him. He was injured because the vehicle overturned.”
