SC notice on beef ban in Maharashtra

New Delhi, Aug 17 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Wednesday issued notice to the Maharashtra government on a petition challenging a Bombay High Court order permitting consumption of beef brought from states that allow cow slaughter.

A bench of Justice A.K. Sikri and D.Y. Chandrachud issued notice on the plea by Akhil Bharat Krishi Go Sewa Sangh after counsel Manish Singhvi contested that part of the high court verdict which allowed bringing ino Maharashtra bovine meat from the states where their slaughtering is legal.
