Srinagar: A nine-year-old girl and four nomads were injured in a brutal attack by cow vigilantes who were reportedly armed with sickles in Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir on Friday evening, according to media reports.

The nomad family was moving with their livestock near the Talwara area. They were intercepted by a large group of gau rakshaks and beaten up with iron rods, NDTV reported.

The victims said the attackers had planned to kill them and throw them into a river. They also robbed them of the livestock, according to News18.

"They were planning to kill us. They did not even spare my old uncle. Our 10 -year-old son has been missing. We are looking for him," a woman who was part of the nomadic group told reporters in a video chat.

"The attack was sudden and they took all our belongings. Our goat, sheep and dogs were all looted," another woman said.

Friday's attack on the nomad family occurred weeks after a 55-yr-old Muslim farmer and four others from Haryana were beaten by cow vigilantes in Alwar district of Rajasthan. The 55-yr-old man, who was later identified as Pehlu Khan, succumbed to his injuries after two days.

Attacks in the name of cow is becoming a norm in India ever since Modi government took charge in New Delhi. Immediately the BJP formed government in New Delhi, Akhlaque Ahmed was lynched to death in Dadri, Uttar Pradesh.

Weeks later two Muslim cattle traders were found hanging from a tree in Jharkhand. Soon after some other Muslim cattle traders were attacked in Haryana.
