At a meeting held by Hindu organisations in Malerkotla on Tuesday, leaders decided to block railway traffic for two hours on September 24, if the district police failed to solve the case of carcasses recovered from sewerage.

Talking to HT, Hindu Welfare Board state president Ravi Kant, said, "Police failed to act against the culprits, and we have decided to block the rail traffic in the state."

"It seems the police was shielding the culprits, but we will take this issue to the national level," said Kant.

Representatives formed an 11-member committee to oversee the protest, at the meeting.

Sangrur Senior superintendent of police Mandeep Singh Sidhu said the police was still investigating the case.

On September 10, carcasses of cows were recovered from a sewer in Malerkotla while cleaning. Police had registered a case against unknown persons under the Prevention of Cow Slaughter Act.
