Cops rescue cattle from two vehicles, thieves flee | Jaipur News

JAIPUR: As part of a crackdown on cow smuggling, a team of Bharatpur police intercepted two collection jeeps and rescued 17 cattle from the vehicles in the early hours of Saturday. However, taking advantage of the darkness, the smugglers managed to flee.
According to the police, cow guards informed the local police of the movement of two vehicles of Nagar Bharatpur area late Friday evening. The police prepared a team and barricades were launched in Bharatpur.
“Initially, some security guards managed to stop these vehicles and while they were arguing with the drivers of the two vehicles about the illegal transport of cows, some of them intimidated us. Our team arrived on site and saved 17 cows. A cow was found dead. They were kept in two pick-up jeeps,” said a senior police officer from Nagar police station.
“A matter under the appropriate sections of Rajasthan Cattle Ordinance was filed against the smugglers and the cows were moved to a local barn,” the officer added.
It may be recalled that Bharatpur is very close to the Haryana border where cows are smuggled and slaughtered. Nooh Mewat of Haryana, 90 kilometers from Nagar, is the area where cows are smuggled from Rajasthan and slaughtered.
“With the help of the local administration, we have also installed speed brakes every two kilometres. Special police stations are created to control this threat,” an officer said.
