Hotel in Jaipur targeted by Gau Rakshak Dal

A Jaipur hotel that was sealed in March after it was attacked by gau rakshaks has not been reopened despite a district and sessions court order. According to a Hindustan Times report, Hayat Rabbani, a hotel on Jaipur’s Kanti Chandra Road was laid to siege on March 19 based on suspicions that it was serving beef. Rabbani, along with two other hotel workers were booked under section 151 of the Criminal Procedure Code.However, lab reports confirmed that the meat in question was not beef, following which, the court had instructed the Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC) to reopen the hotel within seven days on April 29. The JMC was also required to submit a compliance report to the court, but according to hotel owner Naeem Rabbani, the hotel has remained sealed. Municipal corporation officials told the Hindustan Times that they were unaware of such an order from the court, saying, “If there is any order, we will abide by whatever the honourable court has said”. Rabbani, however, claims that he had handed over the court order to the concerned JMC official himself and therefore, he said, the corporation must have a copy of the order.
