Barwani (MP), Feb 4: Seven containers containing flesh were today seized and four drivers arrested from two police areas on Agra Mumbai National Highway in this district, police said today.
''On the basis of information by some Hindu organisations, four containers were seized from a 'dhaba (roadside restaurant)' near Balsamund chek post, and two from Sendhwa area. Four drivers were arrested but two others managed to escape,'' Sub-Divisional Officer of Police (SDOP) Rajeev Mishra said.
He said the anger of supporters of Hindu organisations over the suspicion that containers were conveying beef was clamed down.
A total of 11 containers conveying flesh had been seized in Barwani in the past two days. The drivers had been sent on police remand.
Sub-Divisional Officer (Revenue) Vishnu Kamalkar said some Hindu organisations had alleged that transport employees at Balsumund chek post were allowing these containers to go for a bribe.
A constable has been removed and was being sent to Gwalior headquarters in this view. An investigation report has been submitted to the district collector in this regard.
