Source says, the vehicles were coming from Tinsukia in Upper Assam when the members of the Hindu Yuva Chhatra Parishad’s unit stopped them and asked the drivers to step out. The men then brutally thrashed the drivers accusing them of cow smuggling.
Bikash Bordoloi leader of ‘Hindu Yuva Chhatra Parishad’ said, “These people smuggle cattle across the border to Bangladesh. They transport them in miserable conditions. We caught them red handed yesterday. In one vehicle they pack 40 – 50 cattles where there is space for only ten animals. We found some of the animals had their limbs fractured. But police remain blind to their plight and take bribe from these traders. We confiscated the vehicle and reported it to police but cops came two hours late.”
After the incident, Assam Police Director General Mukesh Sahay assured that a probe is being conducted into this incident and the culprit won’t be spared he said. However, the DGP also admitted that it was not possible for the police to prove adequate security to all cattle traders across the state and will be dealt with case to case basis.
