Mangaluru, Oct 18: The city police and vigilantes of Bajrang Dal today intercepted a truck and seized 2,500 kg of beef that was being transported in it. Police also nabbed two persons who were transporting the meat ostensibly from Hubballi to the city.

Acting on information given by Bajrang Dal, personnel from Kankanady Town police station intercepted the truck near Kannur-Padil and seized the vehicle.

Deputy commissioner of police (law and order) Arunangshu Giri said the carcasses of slaughtered cows were hidden behind plastic trays containing fish. The lorry was coming to the city via Hassan when police intercepted it, he added. This is the second such incident in the last week. On Tuesday, personnel of Mangaluru north PS too had intercepted a vehicle in which 1,000 kg of beef was being transported illegally.

Sharan Kumar Pumpwell, divisional secretary of Vishwa Hindu Parishad said the new modus operandi used by those into illegal cattle slaughter and meat trade is a disturbing development. “This is precisely the reason why the VHP has urged the city police commissioner to set up a special squad,” Sharan said. “We are passing information on any such illegal movement of meat into Dakshina Kannada district to the police for them to take action,” he added.
