Pehlu Khan’s aides and two others charged with cow smuggling

Jaipur: Two men who were travelling with Pehlu Khan, the victim who was lynched by the mob last year, had been booked under cow smuggling as they did not have permissions to take the cattle out of Rajasthan.

According to the news reported in Hindustan Times, the charges were also booked against the pick-up owner and his driver son. Rafeeq and Azmat were charges with cow smuggling as they cannot produce receipts obtained from cattle market.

The police have found their names in the records that they bought the cattle, but, as they did not have permits, they were charged under the act.

As per the Rajasthan Bovine Animal Act, a permit from the district collector or an authorised officer is needed to take cattle out of the state.

However, the police had given clean chit to six persons involved in the lynching of Pehlu Khan.
