''We have got permission for use of chicken instead of beef in daughter's engagement function,'' said Sharfaraz who had approached the police.

Since Adityanath Yogi took charge as chief minister of the state with a vow to crack down on cattle smuggling many illegal slaughterhouses have been shut down. There were also reports of meat shops being set ablaze in Hathras.

Meanwhile, in Lucknow, protesting against the crackdown on slaughter houses the Chicken and Mutton Mandi Committee has called for an indefinite strike.

"We have decided to intensify our strike. All shops will remain closed. Fish sellers too have joined us and are extending support to us," Lucknow Bakra Gosht Vypar Mandal office bearer Mubeen Qureshi said.

On Sunday, three persons were also arrested for illegal slaughter after over 20 kg of meat was seized from their house at Madhavi village in Shamli district.
