Gopal attempted to rescue cattle that was stolen and being transported by the cow smugglers in Palwal, Haryana
Yet another incident of brutal murder of a Gau Rakshak by cattle smugglers has emerged from Palwal in Haryana. Gopal, 35, and a father to 3 young daughters and a resident of Sondahad village is the victim. He was a member of a local Gau Rakshak Dal and was active in nabbing cattle smugglers many times earlier.
On Monday 29th July at around 7PM, Gopal received information from local sources about several cows being stolen and illegally transported in a van. He immediately informed the other members of the Gau Rakshak Dal and arrived at the location to track the vehicle. He sucessfully traced the van which was traveling on the Palwal highway and asked them to stop. However, the smugglers did not stop and drove away. Gopal continued to chase them when a smuggler from inside the vehicle shot him.
Other members who arrived at the scene immediately took Gopal to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. The situation in the village is tense as the police are on the lookout for the vehicle and the perpetrators. Local reports say that cattle smuggling has increased drastically in the area due to which Gau Rakshaks are also vigilant.
As usual those who shed crocodile tears at the treatment meted out to the cattle smugglers have been silent at the brutal killing of Gopal. Each of those who wrote a letter to the PM over lynching in the country have been conspicuously silent over the murder of Gopal by cattle smugglers.
In support of Gopal and Gau Rakshaks like him, #GopalLynched has been trending on Twitter throughout the day with many exposing the hypocrisy of the liberal brigade.
