A truck driver and two others were thrashed in Bihar's Bhojpur district on Thursday on the suspicion of carrying cow meat 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. Promising strict action against those running the illegal slaughter house, the DM said the meat has been sent for testing. Later, the people blocked National Highway 84 on the Ara-Buxar road, demanding action against the Shahpur police station in-charge for not taking action against illegal slaughterhouses.
The sealing of the slaughter house takes place a day after three persons were thrashed by a frenzied mob in Bihar for allegedly carrying beef in a truck. Police said that locals confiscated truck and matter is being probed. Police reached the spot and took the three men into custody.
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. Officials of Shahpur police station are allowing this. According to the Bihar Preservation and Improvement of Animals Act, 1955, cow and buffalo slaughter is banned in the state.
The three persons were then handed over to the police.
