The Rajasthan State Human Rights Commission (RSHRC) has sought a report from the State government over the death of a 28-year-old man in Alwar district who was allegedly thrashed by a mob on the suspicion of cow smuggling.

On Thursday, the National Human Rights Commission sent a notice to the Rajasthan government over the death of Akbar alias Rakbar Khan.

Taking cognisance of the alleged lynching case, the State human rights panel has sought a report from the Rajasthan Chief Secretary by August 8.

RSHRC chairperson Justice Prakash Tantia has asked the State government to give its viewpoint on effective prevention of such similar incidents considering the Supreme Court guidelines.

The Alwar District Collector and SP have also been asked to submit a factual report in the matter, the chairperson said, adding that the State government has been asked to send the report by August 8.

The RSHRC had registered a case following a complaint lodged on July 24 by State secretary of Rajasthan Muslim Mahasabha N.D. Kadri and others in the alleged lynching case in Alwar.
