Bengaluru techie brutally attacked by a large mob for reporting illegal cow slaughter

In a shocking incident, a Bengaluru techie was brutally attacked by a 150-200 strong mob after she decided to report an instance of illegal cow slaughter happening in the city.

As per reports [1][2], the woman named Nandini was driving past the Avalahalli area in JP Nagar on Saturday where she noticed that about 14 cows were being taken to a secluded street for being illegally slaughtered. In this area many illegal beef shops are also known to operate.

She decided to report this matter to the Talaghattapura police at about 7:30 PM and demanded that immediate action be taken. The police recorded her complaint and claimed that they had sent 15 constables to rescue the cows. But the techie and her friends received no update for about an hour and then decided to go to the location, accompanied by 2 cops.

When they reached the spot, they saw a huge crowd of about 150-200 people. They initially thought that it had gathered after seeing the police vehicles. But it seems, they found no policemen on the spot and soon the mob started throwing stones and bricks at their car which caused damage to the vehicle. The report also claimed that the constables accompanying them, had got down from the car and remained mere bystanders.

Nandini has also alleged that the crowd was shouting pro-Pakistan slogans and their assault resulted in an injury to her right shoulder. While trying to save herself she rammed into a shop and an electric pole. After somehow managing to save themselves, they reportedly went back to the police station where the sub-inspector allegedly shouted at them and refused to take pictures as a proof of the attack.

She has since then alleged that the police were in collusion with the cow slaughter mafia and has also alleged that the whole trap was laid by the police.

The Talaghattapura police on the other hand is singing a completely different tune. According to them, they rescued the cows after receiving the complaint and when Nandini reached the spot to verify, their car hit a small shop and an electric pole. As a result, the locals started to throw stones at them and thus they suffered injuries.

Only a detailed investigation in the matter would help reveal as to which version of events are accurate.

This whole incident has again brought into focus the fact that, even though the Media has focused extensively on the subject of the so called Gau Rakshaks, it has remained virtually silent in its outrage over these illegal cow smugglers.

But we had reported in the past about the pan-India brutality of these smugglers.

In July there were reports of 7 tourists in Odisha getting attacked by cow smugglers because they protested against the atrocities being inflicted by these smugglers on about 500 cows. These smugglers have attacked villagers and even killed a farmer in Uttar Pradesh in the process of stealing bovines.

The brazenness of these smugglers also extend to attacking law-enforcement agencies. In April these smugglers had fired shots at policemen in the Bharatpur district of Rajasthan after they tried to stop a truck carrying cows. In June, the cow smugglers inflicted deep injuries on a BSF jawan after he tried to stop about 5-6 of them from crossing over into Bangladesh via the Meghalaya border.
