Cow vigilantes arrested for assault on Indian officials

Cow vigilantes arrested for assault on Indian officials

Despite in possession of all the legal documents to claim their purchase, the mob did not listen to the officials and even tried to torch one of the trucks with at least 10 cows inside it.

Eight people were arrested on Tuesday for allegedly attacking and torching trucks full of cows in Rajasthan as Tamil Nadu officials said they were scared to travel across the state and elsewhere.

A mob intercepted five trucks in Barmer on Sunday night, accusing them of smuggling cows. A case was also registered against 50 people for voluntarily hurting public servant and deterring him from discharge of duty. "The cows have been taken to a local cow shelter for the time being", he added. They roughed them up and tried to burn one of the trucks which had cows inside of it!

Chainaram, Kamlesh, Vikram and Jaswant have been arrested in the matter. Timely intervention of the police foiled their attempt to set a truck on fire.

According to NDTV, the cows were being taken for a national cattle breeding programme, the "Rashtriya Gokul Mission", which aims to preserve indigenous cattle breeds.

"Some policemen who did not react in time despite calls from the Tamil Nadu officials have been shunted to the police lines. The policemen transferred include Jairam, the SHO of Sadar Police Station, Sub Inspector Dhruv Prasad and Assistant Sub Inspector Majid", Singla told the national daily.

CPI Tamil Nadu unit strongly condemned the attack on State government officials, and sought stern action against them. In another instance, Vigilante attacked a 55-year-old cattle trader, Pehlu Khan in Alwar and four others.

"BJP's divisive politics, the environment of hate fostered by it and no governance, spells hell for our social fabric (sic)", CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury said on Twitter.

"The CPI state committee strongly condemns this attack", Mutharasan said in a statement here.
