The SC had asked state governments to designate a nodal officer in each district to procure intelligence reports and identify districts where incidents of mob violence and lynching had been reported in the past five years.
“It is a problem here each year, during three-four months around this time. The crops grow tall during this period, so it is easy for gangs to make away with cattle via the expressway,” said Rajender, a resident of the village.
"When we reached the spot, we saw a man's body lying in the fields. He was bare chested and was only wearing a pair of red underpants. There were cuts on his hands and neck...” said ASI Rambir, the complainant in the case.
Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar Thursday announced financial assistance of Rs 5 lakh to the family of Rakbar Khan alias Akbar Khan, a resident of Kaul village in Haryana’s Nuh district, “who fell victim to mob lynching on mere suspicion of cow smuggling”.
