Referring to the alleged police inaction in a lynching case in Rajasthan’s Alwar district, which had led to his death, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s slogan ‘New India’, saying hatred was replacing humanity in the country and people are left to die.
Rakbar Khan, alias Akbar of Kol village in Haryana’s Nuh district, was attacked by alleged cow vigilantes in Ramgarh in Alwar district on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday, leading to his death.
The local police came under fire from various quarters after it was reported that they took Rakbar to the hospital three hours after they found him. The police have also been accused of taking Rakbar to the police station initially and beating him up.
Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter to strongly criticise the incident.
“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. Why? 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,” he said.
