In the early hours of Sunday morning, at around 3am, Akbar Khan was laid to rest in his village in northern Indian Haryana state.

The previous evening, Akbar’s family and villagers had placed his lifeless body out on a road near the Alwar-Delhi highway to protest against his brutal killing.

Akbar, a 28-year-old Muslim man, was beaten to death by a group of so-called cow vigilantes on Saturday in Lalawandi village in western Rajasthan state while transporting cattle, local police said.
