Three thrashed in Bihar over beef

Bihar: Truck carrying beef detained by Bajrang Dal activists, locals in Bhojpur, 3 held

Bhojpur: The incidents of atrocities in the name of cow protection does not seem to die down as three men were thrashed by locals in Bihar's Bhojpur on Thursday over suspicion of carrying beef in a truck. The truck, which was on its way to Muzaffarpur district, was intercepted by the mob on suspicion that it was carrying beef, The New Indian Express reported.

According to The Indian Express, meat samples from the truck have been sent for testing and police suspect that the West Bengal-bound truck was transporting buffalo meat.

India Today reported sources as saying that the mob allegedly got a tip off about a truck carrying beef coming from the Ranisagar village.

It was only after senior police officials rushed to the spot and pacified the protesters that the blockade was lifted.

Reports said a mob in Shahpur near Ara town of Bhojpur district led by cow vigilantes on Thursday thrashed a truck driver and two others and overpowered them. The locals, who alleged that illegal slaughterhouses have been running in the area for past few months, also blocked the NH 84 in protest.

The arrested persons, who were from Rohtas district in south-west Bihar, were being interrogated to find out if the meat they were carrying was beef. Animal husbandry minister Pashupati Kumar Paras also said the ban on cow slaughter as per a 1955 law would be enforced stringently across Bihar.

The three persons were then handed over to the police. "We have sealed an illegal slaughter house functioning in Ranisagar village for years".

"It is a clear confirmation that BJP has assumed power in Bihar", he said, according to PTI. He must be happy after hearing about it.
