A Delhi court has directed registration of an FIR in connection with the alleged criminal misappropriation of animals entrusted by the police to the Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre (SGACC), run by BJP MP Maneka Gandhi.

Metropolitan magistrate Rajesh Malik said that an FIR be registered after SGACC gave conflicting versions about the fate of 248 cattle seized by the police from an overloaded truck in January, which were a case property in a matter before the court, and claimed that two-third of them had died.

“Contrary medical reports and suppression of facts of death of animals, suggest that SGACC has not disclosed the correct facts to the court,” the magistrate said. On January 12, a truck loaded with cattle was intercepted by the police in which animals were found in excess of the permissible limit.
