Congress President Rahul Gandhi took a strong position on the Alwar lynching case saying that the act reflects Modi’s “New India” where “humanity is replaced with hatred”
Policemen in #Alwar took 3 hrs to get a dying Rakbar Khan, the victim of a lynch mob, to a hospital just 6 KM away.
They took a tea-break enroute.
This is Modi’s brutal “New India” where humanity is replaced with hatred and people are crushed and left to die. https://t.co/sNdzX6eVSU

The lynching took place on Sunday when Akbar Khan, 28, along with his friend was taking cows to his village through a forest near Lalawandi area in Alwar district. Some locals allegedly thrashed him, suspecting him to be a cow smuggler. Doctors declared him dead on arrival.
The Alwar lynching case has took a new turn, as eyewitnesses have alleged foul play by the police. One of the eyewitnesses told ANI that the police stopped outside his house and thrashed and abused the victim.
It has also been alleged that the police delayed in taking the victim to the hospital, which was less than 6 km away.
However, Alwar Superintendent of Police Rajendra Singh said nothing can be ascertained before the investigation is completed.
“All those guilty will be brought to justice. The police is thoroughly investigating the case,” he said.
