The incident reportedly happened at about 5:10 PM, when the team had along with a large convoy of 35 policemen had reportedly gone to the suspected illegal slaughterhouse in DB Halli which was operating under the garb of a two wheeler garage.

The operators initially refused to open the establishment, plus a crowd gathered at the scene and started chanting slogans. Soon things completely went out of control, which included the windshield of their car getting damaged. They somehow managed to managed to escape the area in police vehicles whose windows were also smashed. The illegal-slaughterhouse reportedly confined 15 cows and other bovines.

This search was a result of a High Court direction for a probe into illegal slaughterhouses. Initially the two animal rights activists named Kavitha Jain and Joshine Anthony had identified illegal slaughterhouses. Later they accompanied by court officials (which included a public prosecutor) and the police visited 3 illegal slaughterhouses on 14th October.

The police are investigating the current incident and have reportedly made about 12 arrests in the matter. After the incident, a meeting was also held with the local leaders of the “minority community” to find an amicable solution.

This is the second time in recent days, such an incident has come to light from the city. We had reported how a woman was brutally attacked by a 150-200 strong mob in the city’s Avalahalli area after she reported an instance of cow slaughter from that area.
