Rajkot: Salim sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment for cow slaughter, fined with Rs 1 lakh

A Gujarat court has sentenced a person to 10 years of rigorous imprisonment in a case related to cow slaughter. The matter is from the city of Dhoraji of Gujarat where a man named Salim Makrani had first stolen and then slaughtered the calf. This is the first time in the country when a court has given such a big punishment for cattle slaughter.

While hearing the cow slaughter case, the Rajkot court also imposed a fine of one lakh rupees on the accused along with 10 years of imprisonment.

The court found Salim guilty of stealing a calf and then subsequently slaughtering it. In the beginning of this year, a person named Satiar Koliya had filed an FIR accusing Salim of stealing a calf and killing it at his daughter’s wedding feast.

Police started probing the case and based on the forensic investigation, it was conclusively established that the case was indeed that of cow slaughter. The police furnished all the evidence collected against Salim in the court of law. Based on the evidence submitted by the police,  the Additional District and Sessions Judge HK Dave pronounced the sentence on Saturday (July 6th, 2019) under the Gujarat Animal Protection (Amendment) Act 2017 to the accused named Salim Makrani.

Gujarat is the first state in the country which has passed such a strict law to stop cow slaughter. The Gujarat Government had passed a law in June 2017 for the protection of cattle in the Assembly. Under this law, there is a provision of 10 years sentence and up to five lakh rupees fine in cases pertaining to cow slaughter.
