Police arrested three women late on Saturday night in Bharatpur on the charges of illegally transporting bovines to Uttar Pradesh and Haryana in Mewat region.

They were arrested under sections of the Rajasthan Bovine Animal (Prohibition of Slaughter and Regulation Temporary Migration or Export) Act, 1995.

Asarfi, Nurjahan and Rani of Nadrai village in Aligarh (Uttar Pradesh) were carrying six bovines through the rural areas of Mewat region of the district when arrested, police said.

“The arrest followed a tip-off from locals,” said Kaman police station SHO Neki Ram. They had three bulls and three male calves with them when arrested, he added.

The women were taking the animals to a slaughterhouse in Haryana, police said. All rescued bovines were shifted to a cow shelter.

Engaging women smugglers seems to be a new modus operandi of smuggling groups that take bovines from Alwar and Bharatpur for slaughter to neighbouring Haryana villages.
