Jaipur, July 24: Rakbar Khan, who was allegedly lynched to death on the suspicion of cow smuggling in Rajasthan’s Alwar district, died of shock caused by his injuries, the post-mortem report has said.
On Saturday, Rakbar and his friend Aslam were taking cows to their villages in Haryana through a forest area in Alwar’s Ramgarh, where they were caught by a group of people. While Aslam managed to flee, Rakbar was allegedly thrashed brutally by the group.
A three-member medical board which conducted the post-mortem said, “The cause of death in this case is shock as a result of injuries sustained over body.”
The board, comprising Dr Sanjay Gupta, Dr Amit Mittal and Dr Rajiv Gupta of the General Hospital of Alwar, made the remarks in the post-mortem report.
Khan sustained multiple injuries in the attack.
The police have arrested three people suspected to be involved in the attack on Khan.
Under fire for a delay in taking Khan to the hospital, the Rajasthan Police set up a four-member committee to probe the allegations.
The panel ordered the suspension of the then assistant sub-inspector posted at the Ramgarh police station, Mohan Singh, and transferred three others to police lines.
The action was taken after a video purportedly showing ASI Singh admitting to his “mistake” went viral.
The committee will also probe whether Khan became a victim of police beating on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday.
