Dairy vandalized on suspicion of beef trade

Three men in Raipur vandalised a dairy run by muslim man on suspicion of carrying beef trade. These men who claimed themselves “gau rakshaks”, or cow vigilantes, allegedly entered the dairy in the city’s Gokul Nagar area and assaulted people in the shop. The next morning, a group of at least 50 members of right-wing groups, including the Bajrang Dal, chanted slogans at the DD Nagar police station. They demanded that a first information report be registered against Qureshi on cow slaughter charges. They accused the police of bias and claimed they had found “bones” behind the shop. The police said no evidence of cow slaughter had been found yet. A Congress government is in power in the state.
