Bengaluru, Jul 11: The Bharatiya Janata Party led government of Karnataka is planning to ban cow slaughter as well as the sale and consumption of beef in the state by bringing Prevention of Cow Slaughter and Preservation Bill, 2012.

"Many states have passed the Anti-Cow Slaughter Bill. We are preparing to implement it in Karnataka as well. The state government will soon implement a ban on cow slaughter, sale and consumption of beef on the lines of many other states," said Prabhu Chauhan, the state's Animal Husbandry Minister.

The Anti-Cow Slaughter Act is already in place in several states like Gujarat, Delhi, Haryana, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh among others.

Last month, the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government passed a draft ordinance to prevent cow slaughter, providing maximum rigorous imprisonment of 10 years and a fine up to Rs 5 lakh.
The Uttar Pradesh Cabinet Cow Slaughter Prevention (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020 aims at making the existing Uttar Pradesh Prevention of Cow Slaughter Act, 1955 more effective towards cow safety.

In Karnataka, the BJP-led government had promised to ban cow slaughter in its manifesto for 2018 state assembly election.

"The government will form a team of experts to look into once the current pandemic situation eases," Chauhan stated, adding that if necessary, the team of experts will visit states like Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat.

The then BS Yediyurappa-led BJP government had passed the Karnataka Prevention of Cow Slaughter and Protection Bill in 2010 but it failed to get presidential approval. Three years later, the Bill was withdrawn by the Siddaramaiah-led Congress government.

"I will discuss this matter with Chief Minister and if this pandemic situation eases, by next session, if not by upcoming assembly session, we will try to bring Karnataka Prevention of Slaughter and Preservation of Cattle Bill," Chauhan added.

Aditya Alva

Bengaluru, Sept 15: In the latest development, the Central Crime Branch (CCB) raided the premises of former Karnataka minister's son Aditya Alva near Hebbal, Bengaluru, on Tuesday as the crackdown on the drug nexus and its link to the Sandalwood industry intensified.

Sources informed Republic TV that the CCB sleuths obtained a search warrant and raided the house of Aditya Alva's 'House of Lives' premises.

Aditya Alva has been absconding ever since his name appeared in the FIR filed by the CCB on actor Ragini Dwivedi, naming twelve individuals including the son of former Karnataka minister Jeevaraj Alva.

Several arrests have been made by the CCB over the past few weeks as they close in on the links between the drug nexus and the Kannada film industry. The CCB has also asked businessman Prashanth Sambargi to appear before it and share the information he has on the alleged drug nexus.

The police custody of Sanjjana Galrani, along with Kannada actors Ragini Dwivedi, Ravishankar, Rahul, Niyaz, and Loum Pepper Samba — has been extended till September 14, informed Sandeep Patil, Joint CP-Crime on Bengaluru drug case.

Ragini Dwivedi was sent to 5-day custody by the Court. As per the CCB sources, one Niyaz has also been arrested in connection with the case as part of the ongoing probe. Notably, Kannada filmmaker Indrajit Lankesh, a couple of weeks back, had appeared before the CCB and revealed information about the use of drugs in the Kannada film industry.

Actors arrested, houses raided

Shortly after Ragini's arrest, the CCB raided the house of actor Sanjjanaa Galrani in Bengaluru. The Bengaluru Joint Commissioner of Police, Sandeep Patil confirmed that the team conducted the search activities at Sanjjanaa Galrani’s house, after obtaining a search warrant from the court, she was later arrested by the team. The officials also mentioned that Sanjjanaa was kept under a scanner, ever since her friend, realtor Rahul was arrested by the CCB in connection with the drug case. Viren Khanna, too, has been arrested in the case.

On Friday, the arrested Sandalwood actress, however, dramatically refused to give her blood samples for a dope test as a part of the CCB's investigation. Sanjjanaa threw a fit claiming that it was her fundamental right to say no to giving a blood sample and that her lawyers had informed her to do so. The investigation is still ongoing in the case.
