Mauled Body of Umar Thrown on Rail Tracks, PUCL Rajasthan Accuses Police of Complicity

Sabrangindia 13 Nov 2017

 
The PUCL Rajasthan  has demanded the arrests of policemen who allegedly also fired at the now dead Umar Muhammad on November 10, 2017 at Ghatmatika Pahadi, near Pahadi Kaman, Bharatpur, Rajasthan. No FIR was lodged till yesterday, two days after the ghastly murder first initiated by so called 'Gau Rakshaks'. Sabrangindia had reported from the TV 18 story on the incident yesterday.
 

Now police sorurces clai, that a 'second FIR' was lodged Sunday under IPC section 302 (murder) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence) following a complaint by Umar’s family members.  The first FIR lodged (despite the fact that a human being had been brutally killed) was under The Rajasthan Bovine Animal (Prohibition of Slaughter and Regulation of Temporary Migration or Export) Act, against the alleged cow smugglers on Friday.

The PUCL, a reputed human rights body has accused policemen from the Ramgarh thana (Alwar) also of the murder and also trying to destroy evidence of the killing by throwing Umar's body to the railway track. PUCL issued the release after speaking to one Sahir who is an eye witness and who escaped, somehow the bloody attack. The Indian Express has also quoted Alwar's Meo Panchayat chief, Sher Mohammad alleging that the cow vigilantes killed Umar and then threw his body at the railway tracks to make it look like an accident.

 
Photographs of the dead Ummar shared by his family and one survivor are testimony to the ghastly levels that the perpetrators have gone to commit the act.
 
The PUCL press note says that, " The murder of Umar is the complete failure of the Vasundhara Raje Government in protecting Muslims in particular Dairy farmers from the Killer Gaurakshaks. However in this case it was the bullet of the Ramgarh police that killed him and then the police tried to destroy evidence by throwing his body on the railway track. The present state of his body shows the brutality that the police and the so called Gaurakshaks can indulge in."
 
The rights body has demanded of the immediate lodging of an FIR against the so called Gaurakshaks and the Ramgarh police. "Nothing short of arrest of the above including  one Rakesh whose name was given by Sahir who escaped the bloody madness of the police and  the Gaurakshaks" says the press note.

Compensation including  cash of 25 lakhs and land to the family has also been demanded as also protection for th lone survivor of the incident and a compensation of Rs 10 lakhs. There are also specific demands fromt he government regarding the local police: that the Ramgarh SHO be dismissed from duty and the SP Alwar be suspended for failing to prevent this incident and worse, for not locating the body for two days. Finally says the human rights body, it is time that the state's home minister announce a comprehensive plan for the protection of meos in Alwar and Bharatpur districts.
 
Rajasthan has seen a spurt of such killings of cattle farmers all in the name of cow protection.
In an attempt to the turn the story around and making it an issue of cow smuggling, the SP Alwar told the Indian Express, “Not much is clear at this moment. A vehicle belonging to cattle smugglers was found abandoned at about 6 am on Friday under the jurisdiction of Alwar’s Govindgarh police station,” Alwar SP Rahul Prakash said.
