Jaipur: Following a brutal attack by the so-called “Gau Rakshaks” which resulted in the death of 55 year old Pehlu Khan, Rajasthan police have announced a reward of Rs 5,000 for anybody providing information on each of the six suspects.

Khan and four others were attacked while they were transporting cattle along the Alwar highway on Saturday. When police reached the spot, they left the five men behind and fled.

The incident comes amidst BJP’s laws on banning beef. “We had registered a case against the attackers on the basis of a statement provided by Pehlu Khan before his death. The culpable homicide case has now been converted to that of murder,” said Alwar superintendent of police Rahul Prakash.

Prakash named Om Yadav, Hukum Chand Yadav, Sudhir Yadav, Jagmal Yadav, Naveen Sharma and Rahul Saini as suspects in the FIR.


“A case has also been lodged against 200 unidentified people,  three teams – comprising officers from six police stations have been constituted to arrest them. The teams are led by Behror circle officer Parmal Singh,” Prakash added.

Police said they had arrested 11 people and rescued 28 bovines a little before the attack occurred. “The cattle were being transported in six pick-up vans. While police intercepted four of them, two were attacked by the gau rakshaks,” said an officer on the condition of anonymity.
