Though the intent behind the theft is still unclear, reportedly, prima facie investigation suggests that some goons, on seeing a strayed cow tried to steal it by tying its limbs and abandoned it the moment it got caught in the wire and fled leaving the faultless dying.

A case Under Section 379 (theft) has been registered at the K R Puram police station and the police are analyzing nearby CCTV footage to establish the identity of the miscreants.

Illegal cow slaughtering and cattle mafia have become an epidemic, with several such incidents being reported. Almost exactly a month ago a man carrying three quintals of cow meat from a farm near Pukhrayan town in Kanpur Dehat district was arrested.

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. It was also reported how in an Uttarakhand village, muslim men had first stolen and slaughtered their neighbours cow and then issued death threats to the owners.
