Jharkhand: Muslim mob attacks police for oppossing cow slaughter

Communal tension prevailed in parts of Jharkhand after beef was allegedly found despite a ban on cow slaughter in the state. As reported by Jagran, when the Police reached the spot to intervene, a mob even threw bombs on the police. As per reports, in Ranchi, a cow was being openly slaughtered. But before the police could stop it, the animal had already been killed. The police arrested on Bashir Ansari, but that led to a violent protest by the mob of villagers who gheraoed the police, pelted stones and even shouted pro-Pakistan slogans.

Even as the Police tried to contain the curfew-like situation, tensions flared in Badgai area of Ranchi. As per Jagran report, the mob even pelted stones on the police, following which Rapid Action Force was called to help contain the tension. As of now, over two dozen people are arrested and Bengal border is sealed.

However, as reported by Times of India, calm has been restored in Ranchi after the incident and efforts are on to stop spreading rumours over the incident.
