NEARLY THREE weeks after Khandwa administration invoked National Security Act (NSA) against three people allegedly involved in cow slaughter, the Home Department has revoked the stringent provision against two of them.

Moghat Police had charged Raju alias Nadeem, Shakeel and Azam with slaughtering a cow in Kharkali village, about 10 km from the communally sensitive Khandwa town and booked them under sections 4, 6, 9 of Prohibition of Cow Slaughter Act. Later, on recommendation from the SP, Khandwa Collector sanctioned slapping of the NSA that allows detention for a longer period.
