Ra­jiv Gupta, joint com­mis­sioner, MC, said: "The cat­tle, which have been im­pounded will not be re­leased as keep­ing an­i­mals within Mu­nic­i­pal Lim­its is not per­mis­si­ble."

The re­port against own­ers who will ap­proach the Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion to free these cat­tle will be lodged with the po­lice, under which there is a pro­vi­sion of im­pris­on­ment as well, he added.
