Jaipur, July 26: Like cow smugglers, the Rajasthan Police is also responsible for the rise in cases of cow smuggling and consequent incidents of mob lynching, a state Minister has said. “Had policemen been honest and responsible, neither Pehlu Khan nor Rakbar Khan would have died,” said Rajasthan Labour Minister Jaswant Singh Yadav while talking to the media on the sidelines of a two-day district level Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) meeting held in Behrod on Wednesday. He also stood by the statement he issued earlier calling upon the minority community to “stop consuming beef” to respect the sentiments of Hindus and to “keep away from cow smuggling”. (IANS)
