A 65-year-old cattle trader was allegedly beaten to death in Rajasthan’s Baran district by a man who complained that the cows sold to him were not producing enough milk, police said on Thursday.
Dhannalal Gujar suffered critical injuries after he was beaten with sticks by Prakash Gujar (30) on Wednesday afternoon in Baran city—around 270 km from Jaipur. The sexagenarian was rushed to a district hospital, from where he was referred to another hospital in Kota. He succumbed to his injuries late Wednesday night, said Baran city SHO Kalu Ram Verma.
Initial investigations revealed that the two had a heated argument after Dhannalal’s son had sold some cows to the family of Prakash, who complained that they were not producing enough milk, the SHO said.
Police have lodged murder case against the accused, who is absconding, he said.
The post mortem is underway by medical board, he further said.
