The Alwar police in Rajasthan on Thursday said they have arrested three persons on the charge of beating to death a man for ''transporting cows for slaughter.''

The deceased was one of the 15 persons who were brutally beaten up in Alwar on Saturday in the latest violence by cow vigilante groups in the State.

Police said the animals were dairy cows that the cattle rearers had purchased at a cattle fair.

Police officer Rahul Prakash said the three were arrested on Wednesday night and they were on the lookout for six others.
