There have been several instances relating to alleged illegal transport of the cattle in the area. Three trucks were detained in February this year on the suspicion of illegal cattle transporting. A month prior to that, some villagers had thrashed four Muslim men carrying a cow. Their SUV was also set ablaze on the suspicion of them being cattle thieves. In a similar incident last year, a van suspected of smuggling cattle to West Bengal was set on fire by some people in Bhadrak district.
