Police searched for Azam Khan's missing buffaloes
Earlier, UP minister Azam Khan's buffaloes went missing for which the diligent UP Police conducted a massive midnight buffalo hunt.
Seven of Khan's buffaloes went missing over the weekend and the UP police was on its toes in a bid to find the missing buffaloes.
The robbers, who had shown tremendous interest in Khan's buffaloes, cut the thick iron chains and took the animals.
This not only infuriated Khan but also made him use his immense power to spring police personnel to track down his cattle. Sniffer dogs were used to locate Khan's buffaloes.
Reports suggested that cops combed fields and took the help of sniffer dogs to locate the missing cattle.
The buffaloes were later on traced but three policemen were suspended on grounds of 'dereliction of duty.'
The buffalo search however raised many questions on Khan, who has often been accused of not doing enough for the Muzaffarnagar riot victims who are living in the relief camps.
