Kota, July 7: After senior Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan made headlines by forcing the policemen to search for his missing buffaloes in UP, yet another SP MLA forced the cops move from door to door in search of animals in Rajasthan.

As per a TOI report, Samajwadi P MLA from Mainpuri (Sadar), Rajkumar Yadav, was travelling from Kota in Rajasthan to his constituency, when a truck driver reportedly overtook Yadav's car. A livid Yadav instead overtook the truck, forced it to stop and let loose as many as 30 buffaloes from the truck into the village.

When Raj cops searched missing buffaloes

The villagers living nearby the area saw the buffaloes grazing and took them home.

The owner of the buffaloes threatened to file an FIR against the MLA if all of his buffaloes were not returned to him. It was then when Rajasthan cops were forced to move door to door in search of missing buffaloes.

The owners of the cattle agreed to compromise with the SP MLA, once all the buffaloes were traced and returned.

While Yadav reportedly said the cattle was being taken to a slaughter house, the owners insisted the buffaloes were on their way to a local dairy.

Manohal Lal, inspector of the Mahua police station in Rajasthan whose men had traced the animals, was quoted by TOI as saying, "It was hard work, getting all the buffaloes back. A compromise was reached between UP MLA Rajkumar Yadav and cattle owners who identified their buffaloes on the basis of colour strips pasted on their legs."
