Prime News, National (New Delhi), July 24:- Cops in Alwar first ensured that cows were taken to an animal shelter before taking the victim – Akbar Khan – of the Alwar lynching incident, who owned the animals, to a local hospital. NRK Reddy, Special DG heading a four-member probe team, admitted that there was indeed an ‘error in judgement’ on the part of local police officials.
Sources told Zee News that the police personnel first took the cows to a shelter at a distance of 10 km, and then took the victim to the hospital. He had been beaten mercilessly by a mob on Saturday on suspicions of being a cow smuggler but his life could have been, possible, saved had he received timely medical care. Instead, he was declared brought dead when police finally reached the hospital.
There were also reports that the victim was beaten in custody. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
