No one has been detained for the attack on Saturday which took place in close proximity to the highway in the Jaguvas Bahror region near Alwar. Ramesh Sinsinwar who is the station house officer of Bahrir informed the HT that ‘we have registered a case of murder adjacent to six persons and 200 unknown people’.
Despite the fact that professed videos of the incident are flowing on social media and no seizing have been made so far. The transporters too have allegedly been booked beneath the Rajasthan Bovine Animals Act 1995, i.e.’ Prohibition of Slaughter and regulation of Temporary Migration or Export’.
Rajasthan too has seen such attacks previously. Preceding year in September, hundreds of right-wing activists damaged at least 40 Muslim homes in Raghunathgarh village of Alwar where residents were supposed of slaughtering cows.
The vandalism came subsequent to police raided the region and asserted to have recovered three dozen cow carcasses and rescued six cows. The police had also arrested twelve persons. This attack on Saturday comes in the midst of an onslaught in numerous Bhartiya Janata Party ruled states over illegal cow slaughter. Taking prompt from the Yogi Adityanath governmet in Uttar Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Uttrakhand and Madhya Pradesh have also started drives to shut down unlawful slaughterhouses.
The Gujarat government lately made cow slaughter punishable with life imprisonment. Raman Singh, Chattisgarh chief minister in recent times alleged that those found guilty of slaughtering cows would be hanged. Opponent parties over and over again condemn the BJP government at the Centre and states of not doing anything to reign in self styled vigilante clusters targeting populace they deduce of cow slaughter or smuggling.
