‘Take Quick Action Against Illegal Cow Trafficking, If Not Face Protests’- VHP & Bajrang Dal Warns Dist Admin
Mangaluru: Addressing the media persons during a press meet Sharan Pumpwell-the Vishwa Hindu Parishad Regional secretary said, “We are giving a stern warning to the District Administration authorities that if they don’t take quick action against the increasing illegal cattle trafficking that is presently going on, Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal will start protesting on the streets until such illegal activities are completely stopped. We also warn that the District Administration would be held liable for any untoward incidents which may occur during the protests. In spite of increasing illegal cow trafficking that is going on the district administration officials and also the police have turned a blind eye towards it”.
Sharan further said, “It is learnt that several cases of illegal cattle trafficking have been filed in various police station limits, but the cops have failed to take any action against the culprits. If tempos or mini trucks were used earlier to carry on this illegal trade, now cars, SUV’s and minivans are being used to transport the cows illegally to slaughterhouses in Dakshina Kannada and Kudroli in Mangaluru. A mega network of illegal cow trafficking mafia is behind this illegal trade. VHP and Bajrang Dal urge the law enforcement department to form a special squad to stop the illegal trafficking of cows which is on the rise”.
“And if the police nab the people behind this illegal trade, they should take severe action against them, including the culprits who were caught on 4 October transporting cows illegally, where six calves had fallen off from their vehicle during transportation to the slaughterhouse in Kudroli in the City” added Sharan.
District Secretary of Bajrang Dal Shivanand Mendon, Bajrang Dal Regional Convenor Bhujanga Kulal, District Vice President Manohar Suvarna, Guruprasad Ullal and Pradeep Pumpwell, were among others during the press meet.
