Cow smugglers attack cops, injured Vatan Kumar
On May 21, the Uttar Pradesh police, after receiving a tip-off regarding illegal cow slaughter, had reached Ghana Khandi village of Saharanpur district of Uttar Pradesh. As police tried to catch the illegal smugglers, they fired at the police to escape from the spot.
Despite smugglers firing at the police, Vatan Kumar caught hold of one of the smugglers. The constable was attacked with a knife three times. Later, the UP cops fired in self-defence, injuring one of the smugglers. The accused name Virasat was later taken to the hospital where he was declared brought dead.
The injured constable Pawar was shifted to Dehradun’s Jolly Grant hospital where he is currently undergoing treatment.
