Rajasthan police said extortion rackets being run in the garb of cow vigilantism on its radar
“Stern action against the cows smugglers, and also against those who are doing the mischief or creating trouble in the name of cow protection, will be taken," said Reddy.
Special Director General (Law and Order) NRK Reddy made this remark while warning miscreants of "stern action" for both smuggling cows and running the racket of extortion in the name of protecting the animal.
The existence of the extortion racket being run in the name of protecting cows came to the light following lynching of a 28-year-old Rakbar alias Akbar Khan recently by a group of people in Alwar on suspicion of his involvement in cow smuggling.
Reddy said three persons have already been arrested in the Alwar lynching case and the efforts are on to arrest the rest of the accused.
The officer warned the miscreants while emerging from a meeting held at the police headquarters here to review the progress in the case.
