Kerala police arrests 8 Youth Cong workers over ox killing

Makutty, Josey Kandathil and K Sharafuddin slaughtered a calf in Kannur last weekend in protest against Centre's decision to impose new restrictions on the trade of cattle meant for slaughter, triggering nationwide outrage.

A video was circulated of a group of men slaughtering the animal and then distributing its meat in the state's Kannur district.

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi has strongly condemned the act, calling it "thoughtless and barbaric."
