Traders go online for selling cows after cattle sale restriction
Frustrated by restrictions on sale of cattle, traders have started selling cows online as OLX shows that hundreds of cows are up for sale in the virtual world. The environment notification said that animal markets could only trade cattle for agricultural purposes, such as ploughing and dairy production. The law came as part of a tough new law against animal cruelty, but critics say they are aimed at placating hardline Hindu supporters of the Narendra Modi government. The Madurai bench of the Madras High Court suspended the order for four weeks.
