The Delhi Police has arrested three men for alleged cow slaughter in Outer Delhi, with officials saying the accused carried a reward of Rs 50,000 each.
Police said Asif (36), his brother Mohnish (24), and their cousin Naeem (20) were arrested from Jamia Nagar Tuesday. They were carrying a curfew pass from APMC, Azadpur Mandi, which helped them cross pickets and borders with ease, said police.
According to police, a cow carcass was found on May 16 at a vacant plot in Ranhola in Outer Delhi. Locals gathered outside and complained to police. Four days later, police found the remains of a cow at another plot.
Parvinder Singh, DCP (Outer), said his teams inspected the spot and found the same people were allegedly involved. “Over a week, footage from 600 CCTVs was analysed. Our teams were able to find the vehicle used in the offence. Teams tracked 1,350 CCTVs to trace the route taken by the vehicle. We found that the accused were in Jamia Nagar and questioned more than 110 suspects from Delhi and UP. The accused were arrested from Batla House in Jamia Nagar,” said DCP Singh.
