A man allegedly involved in cow slaughter was killed while another was injured in an exchange of fire with the police in Rampur district, an official said on Sunday.
While probing a case of cow slaughter in Patwai police station area, police received information that the accused would come to Moradabad late on Saturday night in a vehicle, Rampur Superintendent of Police Rajesh Dwivedi said.
