Newly-appointed inspector general of police (Rohtak range) Shrikant Jadhav has taken several measures to ensure safety of stray cows in four districts of Sonepat, Rohtak, Panipat and Jhajjar falling under the Rohtak range.

The IG recently held a meeting with superintendents of police (SPs) of the four districts in this regard and issued directions to appoint DSPs as the nodal officers for protection of stray cows in their respective areas.

In the meeting, which lasted three hours, the SPs were told to keep a close eye on the farmers who leave the cows on the roads after they fail to produce milk, so that action could be taken against them.

A statement issued by the Rohtak SP office said that following an appeal by IG Jadhav, several gaushalas in the four districts have adopted 2,100 stray cows from different cities and towns and decided to provide better care to them.

As the number of stray cows has increased manifold in these districts in the past few years, the police are planning to go for sterilisation of stray bulls to control the population of cows.

An official spokesman for the Rohtak police, the IG had also asked the civil surgeons of the four districts ensure sprays in the gaushalas to protect cows from mosquitoes.

Following a request from gaushala owners, the IG has assured them of his support to deal with their problems related to space, feed and health check-ups of cows and sought their cooperation to improve the condition of cows.
