Calling the Alwar lynching case as a painful incident, National Human Rights Commission on Friday issued notices to the Centre and the Rajasthan government for the ‘serious violation’ of human rights by ‘self proclaimed’ volunteers.
The commission has asked for a detailed report of the matter and also enquired about the action taken against the assailants.
The NHRC also asked Union Secretary for a response within four weeks of the measures being taken to deal with such incidents of violence.
The killing of 55-year-old man, Pehlu Khan, allegedly by a group of cow vigilantes on April 1 has led to fear amongst the people, NHRC said.
Rajasthan government has deployed a team of special forces to investigate the matter.
Pehlu Khan, a 55-year-old man , succumbed to his injuries on Monday night after he was allegedly attacked by a group of gaurakshaks for transporting cows in Rajasthan’s Alwar . He was a dairy farmer.
Four others were also attacked by the self proclaimed cow vigilantes even as they produced documents to show that they had purchased the cows.
