A day after a case was registered against self-styled cow vigilantes for resorting to violence against a group of people transporting ‘buffalo meat’, police late on Saturday night arrested three people and produced them in a court on Sunday.

The accused were identified as Ram Kishore (21) of Pali village, Dileep Kumar (19), and his brother Lakhan (24) Sons of Peer Colony in Faridabad district.

The self-styled cow vigilantes then had assaulted the five Muslim men on suspicion that they were transporting beef in their vehicle.

“We have arrested three persons who were sent to judicial custody,” said additional commissioner of police (ACP) Mujesar Radhey Shyam.

“Efforts are being made to arrest others also,” the ACP said.

Meanwhile, the police have sent sample of meat recovered for forensic examination to Hisar. The cops had said the veterinary doctor has reported that the meat was that of buffalo.

Earlier, the Mujesar police had registered case against Azad, Asan, Shehzad, Shakeel and Sonu under Sections 3(13)(1), 8 (13) (3) of the Haryana Gauvansh Sanrakshan and Gausamvardhan Act, 2015 on the complaint of Raj Kumar alias Bittu of Sanjay Colony, Sector 23.

Then the police made Kumar accused in the second FIR when they came to know that the meat recovered was that of buffalo not of cow.

The second FIR was registered against under Sections 148/149/341/323/506 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
