The incident, which came months after the lynching of dairy farmer Pehlu Khan by suspected cow vigilantes in Alwar, has triggered an outrage. The police suspect that the crowd had attacked Umar Khan and two others under the impression that they were smuggling cows.

Ummar Muhammad and Tahir Khan - again cattle traders - were transporting cows from Mewat in Haryana to Bharatpur in Rajasthan, when they were stopped in the Fahari village near Alwar district.

"A few hours after the vehicle was found, information was received about a body being found on railway tracks", Beniwal said.

Ummar was shot dead on Friday morning while he was transporting cattle in a pickup and his body was found near the railway tracks. Khan died on the spot. One of them is admitted to a hospital in Haryana while the other is yet to be located. They have demanded immediate arrest of the accused, but two days after the murder, no FIR in the case has been registered so far. However, he said the State government did not have enough manpower to control "every situation at every place".

An FIR was lodged under The Rajasthan Bovine Animal (Prohibition of Slaughter and Regulation of Temporary Migration or Export) Act, against the alleged cow smugglers on Friday and the vehicle sent to Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL), Alwar SP Rahul Prakash said, reported The Indian Express.

Earlier today, a protest was staged outside the hospital in Alwar to denounce the incident and police's failure to catch the culprits or stop the mob from carrying out the heinous crime despite being present on the occasion.

Despite Prime Minister Narendra Modi's stern warning, a group of cow vigilantes have again killed a member of the minority community in Rajasthan's Alwar district.

However, on Sunday, the family members approached the police with another story.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra also directed the chief secretaries of every state government to file a status report giving details of the actions taken to prevent incidents of cow vigilantism.

The post-mortem of Umar Khan's body was yet to be done, as his relatives insisted that all the culprits be arrested first and the demand for compensation be fulfilled.
