 To protest police apathy in solving the 'poisoning' of bovine animals for more than a week, local residents have decided to observe a one-day bandh on Tuesday.


Various NGOs, Beopar Mandal, political and religious bodies will lend their support to the residents.

On November 15, the carcasses of seven cows and two bulls were spotted in the town. The following day, two more bulls were found poisoned.

The brutality did not stop here as the carcasses of two more cows were found in the Manwal area. The animals' eyes, ears and tails were also found missing. The incident sparked outrage among the masses.

Though the post-mortem of the animals was conducted and the viscera were sent for examination, the report is awaited.

"The organs of the animals were found missing. The reports should have come by now. The administration should have come out in the open in this regard," said Bhisham Pathania, office-bearer of Nadishala Sangharsh Samiti.

SSP Rakesh Kaushal, however, claimed that police personnel were keeping vigil and investigating the matter.

He said adequate security arrangements had been made to avoid any untoward incident during the bandh on Tuesday.
