Police on Monday arrested three women for allegedly storing 40 kg beef in their house in Rajasthan’s Alwar, officials said. Police said that a search is being conducted for two other male accused.
“We received information that beef was stored at a house on the outskirts of Govindgarh town. A team searched the place and around 40 kg meat and cow skin were found. Doctors have confirmed that the meat is beef,” said Dara Singh, Sub- Inspector, Govindgarh police station in Alwar. Police said that the three women were arrested after they were booked under The Rajasthan Bovine Animal (Prohibition of Slaughter & Regulation of Temporary Migration or Export) Act, 1995.

The arrested women are Shakeel’s relatives,” Singh said. “We are sending samples to a forensic laboratory for further testing,” Singh said.
