Six Muslim men, charged with cow slaughter in Khandwa, were sent to jail on Tuesday, a day after they surrendered.

With their surrender, the total number of Muslim men who have been arrested since a police raid in Imlipura has reached 18. The raid that was conducted a fortnight ago in Imlipura, a Muslim locality, led to the release of hundreds of cattle.

“We kept mounting pressure on the accused… that forced them to finally surrender,’’ said Anil Sharma, in-charge of Moghat Police Station.

However, advocate Nafis Kureshi, who represents several accused, said, “No cow was slaughtered and no beef was seized but several people were booked under the cow slaughter legislation.’’

    more than 300 cows were trapped on 3rd floor of the house. Imagine how they have had pushed them through narrow stair cases. If Police wouldn't not have caught them red handed, they would have slaughter all the cows in an Illegal Slaughter house. One must read local news paper during 20th sep to 25th sep to know full story. No leading news agency has shown this news on national media.
