Delhi: Beef taken off Kerala House menu after complaint
New Delhi, Oct 27: While there is still controversy surrounding the Dadri incident, Delhi Police on Monday received a call saying that the Kerala House in Delhi was serving beef on its menu.
The call was made by a Hindu Sena leader who lodged the compliant. Immediately after the call, about 20 police officials rushed to Kerala House to verify whether the state guest house was serving beef or not.
Officials said that after the call, the Parliament Street police station was informed and a team was sent to Kerala House to prevent any untoward incident.
Officials said that they were not there to see whether meat was served or not but merely to prevent any form of violence or hooliganism, keeping in mind the recent incidents that have taken place.
The Kerala House however, removed beef from its menu after the incident as a precautionary step. Officials at the guest house said that they were purchasing meat from Delhi-government authorised slaughter houses.
Cow meat is banned in the entire Delhi-NCR region.
In the past there have been several cases of violence as a result of the nationwide beef ban and growing incidents of intolerance.
