Police in India booked a former member parliament of ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for 'promoting hatred and enmity' after he was caught on camera openly admitting to killing four Muslim men for cow smuggling, The Hindu reported.

In the video, former BJP MLA Gyan Dev Ahuja was seen making the comment while interrupting a speaker, who was urging a group of people to launch an agitation against the lynching of 45-year-old Chiranjilal Saini, who was allegedly lynched by Muslims on suspicion of tractor theft.

"We have so far lynched five people, be it in Lawandi or Behror. This has happened for the first time in this area that they have lynched someone. I have given free hand to workers to kill. We will get them acquitted and secure bail," Ahuja was seen saying in the video.

SHO of a local police station Shiv Shankar said the case was registered by the police on the basis of the video which surfaced after the BJP leader visited the family of Saini.

According to the report of The Hindu, at least two incidents have taken place in Alwar where cow vigilantes attacked Mev Muslim people on allegations of cow smuggling in recent years.

In one such incident, 55-year-old Pehlu Khan was lynched in Behror on April 1, 2017. Similarly, Rakbar Khan died after being beaten up in Lawandi village in Alwar's Ramgarh on July 20, 2018 on suspicion of cow smuggling.
