VHP-Bajrang Dal demands police action against illegal cow slaughter
Mangaluru: Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal of Mangalore District Units have accused the Mangalore City Police of inaction against the illegal cow slaughtering despite intimation to them.
Gauraksha Pramuk of VHP Kateel Dinesh Pai said that illegal cow slaughter was banned in the state. “The Animal Welfare Board has been strictly asked in all the states in the country to follow the law especially during the occasion of Bakrid. Even the district administration has asked that no one should take law into hands regarding illegal cow slaughter and instead to provide information to the police department. But though the VHP and Bajarang Dal informed about cattle kept illegally in the vicinity of Kudroli for slaughtering and DCP Hanumantharaya visited the spot and confirmed the same but no rescue operation was conducted or any action initiated against those who violated the law.”
“Despite confirmed information, police department has failed to take necessary action. This shows that the police department is indirectly supporting the illegal cow slaughtering? How can we trust the police department? Is it not this attitude of police department that is provoking the society to take the law into hands? VHP and Bajrang Dal condemns this”, he said.
It is reported that the VHP leaders have registered their complaint with the Director General of Police via SMS.
