Indian police 'snatch' 51 cows of Muslim family

Oct 15, 2017
ALWAR/JAIPUR: Fifty-one cows of a Muslim family in Alwar district have been snatched, allegedly by the police, on a complaint by some Hindu activists, and handed over to a village gaushala, reported Times of India. For the past 10 days, the family has been struggling to get back its flock. Police said it had no role in the incident. Six months after Pehlu Khan was lynched, another member of the Meo community has now been labelled the same, allegedly by members of some Hindu organisations. Subba Khan, 45, alleged that local police forcibly took away his 51 cows and handed them over to the gaushala following complaints from cow vigilantes. He is now running between the sub-divisional magistrate's (SDM) office and the police station to get back his cows but to no avail. Police, however, said it had no role in the incident and locals had driven the cows to the gaushala. Nearly 17 calves that were at Khan's house now have to be fed with milk bottles. He has given an affidavit at the Kishangarh police station as well as the SDM office that all the cows were milking and their calves are at his home. Sher Mohammad, the Sadar (head) of Meo Panchayat told TOI on Saturday, "The police claimed it received complaints that Khan was into cow slaughtering."
