Alwar lynching: Eyewitnesses allege foul play by police

The Alwar lynching case has taken a new turn, as eyewitnesses have alleged foul play by the police.

One of the eyewitnesses told ANI that the police stopped outside his house and thrashed and abused the victim.

It has also been alleged that the police delayed in taking the victim to the hospital.

However, Alwar Superintendent of Police Rajendra Singh said nothing can be ascertained before the investigation is completed.

"All those guilty will be brought to justice. The police is thoroughly investigating the case," he said.

28-year-old Akbar Khan, along with his friend, was taking some cows to his village through a forest near Lalawandi area in Alwar district, when locals allegedly thrashed him, suspecting him to be a cow smuggler.

Despite being rushed to the hospital, doctors there declared him dead on arrival.
