    The beef, apparently meant to be exported to foreign countries, was seized from a truck which was intercepted at the Karegaon toll naka in Thane district on Wednesday night, Kalwa police station inspector M A Patil said.

    Four persons, including the truck driver, were arrested today in this connection, police said. A case under relevant sections of IPC and that of the Maharashtra Animal Preservation (Amendment) Act was registered, they said, adding that a probe was on in the matter.

    The Maharashtra government had earlier imposed a ban on beef after enactment of the Maharashtra Animal Preservation (Amendment) Act, banning the slaughter of bulls and bullocks, besides cows. As per the Act, the slaughter may attract a five-year jail term and Rs 10,000 fine and possession of meat of bull or bullock could lead to one-year jail and Rs 2,000 fine.
