Members of the Muslim community protested the incident and filed a complaint at the Abu Road City police station against Meena.

"An FIR was registered yesterday based on a complaint we received from members of the Muslim community," SP Sirohi Om Prakash said.

 

Meena has been nabbed for "voluntarily causing hurt, promoting enmity, hurting religious sentiments, breaking peace", he said.

On December 6, a Muslim labourer, Mohammad Afrazul, was hacked to death and burnt in Rajasthans Rajsamand town.

A gruesome video of the crime had gone viral.

Pehlu Khan (55) died in Alwar in April last year after being brutally beaten up by cow vigilantes on suspicion of cattle smuggling.
