The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES NATION - NEWS NET­WORK

Al­war: Ra­jasthan po­lice on Tues­day said a shootout took place be­tween the gang of robbers pos­ing as ‘gau rak­shaks’ and Um­mar Khan and his two ac­com­plices on Fri­day morn­ing lead­ing to Khan’s death

Fol­low­ing the in­ter­ro­ga­tion of two robbers — mas­ter­mind Bhag­wan Singh alias Kala and Ramveer Gu­j­jar – who were ar­rested on Mon­day evening, po­lice said both the groups were crim­i­nals and who had a run-in at Gha­henkar vil­lage on the Al­war-Bharatpur bor­der on Fri­day. “The two gangs ex­changed fire and Um­mar was killed. Um­mar, Tahir and Javed alias Jab­bar were smug­gling cows and trav­el­ling on a ve­hi­cle with the num­ber plate of a two-wheeler,” a se­nior po­lice of­fi­cer said.

The po­lice have reg­is­tered a case of mur­der, loot and at­tempt to mur­der against Bhag­wan Singh and his five other ac­com­plices. The four other gang mem­bers are still on a run. The duo was pro­duced at the Lax­man­garh court on Tues­day and taken on re­mand for three days.

A sep­a­rate case has been reg­is­tered against Tahir and Javed alias Jab­bar. The pickup van in which the live­stock was be­ing trans­ported had a fake num­ber plate of a twowheeler, the po­lice said.

Um­mar’s dis­mem­bered body was re­cov­ered from the rail­way tracks in Govin­dgarh vil­lage of Al­war district on Fri­day morn­ing while his as­so­ciate Tahir was found shot at and crit­i­cally wounded.

Po­lice said Tahir Khan has five cases against him — three of which are un­der sec­tions of the Ra­jasthan Bovine An­i­mal (Pro­hi­bi­tion of Slaugh­ter and Rëgu­la­tion of Tem­po­rary Mi­gra­tion or Ex­port) Act or the RB Act - while two cases are of as­sault. Po­lice also claimed that Um­mar Khan too was wanted in a case un­der the RB Act.
