Agra: Police seals illegal slaughterhouse after journalist shares images on social media

Agra police responded to a tweet showing an illegal slaughterhouse saying that they have sealed the same and made arrests

On February 10, Swati Goel Sharma, a journalist with Swarajya, shared pictures of an illegal slaughterhouse in Mantola locality in Agra. She had said that the slaughterhouse was located in a residential area. Goel said that she was stopped from taking more pictures by the local residents as it would “endanger” her life.

Taking cognizance of her tweet, Agra Police responded two days later that the illegal slaughterhouse has been sealed. In addition, seven people have been booked under various sections of the IPC and sent to jail.

The tweet was posted in a thread where Sharma was discussing her recent Ground Report from Agra’s Mantola. Sharma had reported how Hindus, who are in the minority in the area, “lack in resources and live in fear.”

In the detailed report, Sharma says that communal flare-ups are extremely frequent in the area. The latest communal flare-up in the area, which is the subject of Sharma’s report, could lead to an exodus of Hindus from the locality.

In her report, Sharma states, “A closer look at the situation in Mantola throws up a case study in changing demographics of an area. It also shows that what we commonly understand of majority-minority equations for the country as a whole may not be true for individual states, villages and even tiny localities.”
