Crackdown on slaughterhouses spills to Bihar, 7 sealed

|

Seven illegal slaughterhouses were sealed in Bihar's Rohtas after the Patna high court ordered all illegal abattoirs in the district to be shut down within six weeks. The crackdown on illegal slaughterhouses that was initiated by the Uttar Pradesh government is fast catching up in other states. While five BJP-governed states had also started shutting down illegal slaughterhouses, Bihar is the latest to join the list.

Crackdown on slaughterhouses spills to Bihar, 7 sealed

Jharkhand, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh initiated action against illegal meat shops and slaughterhouses following in UP's footsteps. It may be noted that the Gujarat assembly on Friday amended its cow protection bill to make the punishment for cow slaughter and illegal beef transport harsher. With the new amendment, cow slaughter will attract life term in the state.

Meanwhile, self-proclaimed cow protection organisations in Karnataka have called for similar action against illegal slaughterhouses as well as illegal transportation of cattle in the state. Their demand comes a week after the Karnataka government announced funds for modernisation for meat shops across the state.
