Pro­hib­ited cat­tle meat re­cov­ered in Pilib­hit

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Uttarpradesh -

LUCKNOW: Po­lice on Fri­day re­cov­ered over 40 kg of meat of pro­hib­ited cat­tle from a vil­lage un­der Pu­ran­pur po­lice sta­tion of Pilib­hit dis­trict.

The meat was re­cov­ered from an aban­doned house and in­ves­ti­ga­tors are try­ing to iden­tify the per­sons in­volved in the al­leged an­i­mal slaugh­ter.

The re­cov­ery was made a day af­ter lo­cal po­lice ar­rested 10 peo­ple for al­leged cow slaugh­ter and re­cov­ered an es­ti­mated 500 kg meat of pro­hib­ited cat­tle in the same area.

“Shab­bir Ahmed, Hanif, Bashir Ahmed, Rahis Ahmed, Mo­ham­mad Miyan, Rafiq and Akram, who are res­i­dents of Sher­pur Kalan, along with Habib, Babbu and Md Is­lam of Sa­haukara, were ar­rested in the raids con­ducted when lo­cals re­ported cow slaugh­ter in Sher­pur,” said Pu­ran­pur sta­tion house of­fi­cer KK Ti­wari.

The sit­u­a­tion at the po­lice sta­tion turned tense af­ter the ar­rest when mem­bers of right wing Hindu groups reached there and de­manded strict ac­tion against the ac­cused. The lo­cal po­lice had to call in ad­di­tional po­lice force to en­sure law and or­der was main­tained. The crowd later dis­persed af­ter as­sur­ances from of­fi­cials that re­quired ac­tion would be taken against the ac­cused.
