The probe into the lynching of 28-year-old Akbar Khan by a mob in Alwar was today handed over to an additional SP rank officer by the IG of Jaipur range.
Inspector General (Jaipur range) Hemant Priyadarshy said an impartial investigation would be carried out. No culprit would be spared nor would any innocent be framed, he added.
Two people were arrested and three others were yesterday identified in connection with the lynching of Khan on suspicions of cow smuggling in Ramgarh area of Alwar.
Khan and his friend Aslam had reportedly purchased the cows from Ladpura village and were taking them to their village in Haryana through a forested area near Lalawandi in Alwar district when the accused attacked them.
Aslam manage to flee but an injured Akbar died at a hospital in Alwar.
In April last year, a 50-year-old dairy farmer, Pehlu Khan, was also beaten to death by vigilantes suspecting him to be a cow smuggler.
