Uttar Pradesh: Eight cattle smugglers arrested in Bahraich with arms and ammunition

Four of the cattle smugglers are history sheeters and all of them are reportedly related to each other.

Eight cattle smugglers were arrested by Uttar Pradesh Police in Bahraich district on Friday. Four of them were history-sheeters. The Police were tipped off about the smuggling in Rupaidiha and Nanpare area, close to the Indo-Nepal border. The smugglers were trying to flee to Nepal.

During interrogation, the smugglers are reported to have revealed that they used to steal the cattle in the dark of the night and take them across the border where they used to sell it in Nepal and surrounding areas. The arrested have been identified as Basheer, Sher Khan, Arif, Naseem, Rafik, Shafikh, Sharif and Sharbat Ali. All of them are believed to be relatives.

As per reports, the smugglers even tried to trample the Police personnel with their vehicle. However, they were unsuccessful in their attempt. The team that arrested the smugglers have been rewarded with a sum of five thousand rupees. The Police recovered four cattle, unlicensed pistols, ammunition, and a transportation vehicle from those arrested.

Recently, 10 cow smugglers were caught with 500 kilograms of cow meat in Uttar Pradesh’s Pilibhit. The arrests come after Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath ordered a strict crackdown on cattle slaughter in light of the violence at Bulandshahar. In Bulandshahar, carcasses of cows were discovered by villagers which soon escalated into a rampage after they claimed that the Police wasn’t heeding their complaints.
