Last year on 29th December, nine people, including five women, were arrested for cow slaughter and three quintals of beef were seized from them during a raid on two houses in Khatoli town in Uttar Pradesh.

In January 2016, Police seized a large amount of beef from a utility vehicle which was being transported to Delhi and arrested the driver. The arrested driver claimed that one Bhura was the main person involved in this business but could not give any more details, they said.

However, these are only a few of the many such incidents which happen on a regular basis. Illegal cow slaughtering and cattle mafia have become an epidemic and a major flash-point for ethnic and religious conflicts leading to riots and even deaths, which needs attention and concrete action on an urgent basis.
