Alwar gau rakshak attack: CPM leaders reach city to look into mob lynching case

A delegation of CPM leaders have reached Alwar to look into the gau rakshaks attack case, which led to the death of 50-year-old dairy farmer, Pehlu Khan.

Several CPM leaders have reached Rajasthan's Alwar district today to apprise themselves of investigations into the mob lynching case.

The delegation included CPM's political bureau member Subhasini Ali, Central Committee member Amra Ram, Sankar Prasad Datta and several others.

The leaders met Deputy SP Parmal Singh and took stock of the developments in the mob lynching case on April 1, in which 16 men were attacked by gau rakhshaks.

The vicious mob attack, believed to have been carried out by around 150 men, had left five men, including 50-year-old dairy farmer Pehalu Khan, badly injured. They were taken to Kailash Hospital where Pehalu later died.

The CPM members were also scheduled to meet Alwar Collector Muktanand Agarwal and Supreintendent of Police Rahul Prakash.

Earlier, after receiving flak for 'shoddy investigations', the Behror Police Station was removed from the mob lynching case. It is now being investigated by the Alwar Deputy SP.

The issue of gau rakshaks taking law into their own hands and disrupting law and order has rocked the Parliament. Several Congress leaders, including Ghulam Nabi Azad and others, have come down heavily on the government over law enforcement regarding the same.
