Murder attempt similar to Bhiwani killings
A similar case of alleged cow vigilantism had previously emerged in Haryana's Bhiwani district, when the charred bodies of two men— Junaid, 35, and Nasir, 27— were found inside a vehicle on February 16. They were allegedly killed on suspicion of cow smuggling by members of cow vigilantes. However, an accused in the case claimed the victims were assaulted by the Rajasthan Police.
