Strings of Rajasthan illegal beef market tie the case to Nuh: High alert raised over suspected presence of 20 active cow smugglers and 12 hotspots

The alert was issued on the sidelines of an illegal beef market busted by Rajasthan Police in the district Khairthal-Tijara on 18th February.

On 20th February, Rajasthan police alerted Nuh police in Haryana about 20 active cow smugglers and 12 hotspots in the area around the district. The alert was issued on the sidelines of an illegal beef market busted by Rajasthan Police in the district Khairthal-Tijara on 18th February.

Reports suggest that the Rajasthan government has sent a letter to Haryana officials highlighting the information revealed during the interrogation of the suspects apprehended in an illegal beef market case. The suspects said there is a nexus of cow smugglers in Haryana villages, including Tapakan, Ghasera, Chahalka, Ghagas, Kansali, Mewli, Malaka, Cheela and Pachgaon.

Notably, the distance between district Khairtal-Tijara and district Nuh is around 350 KM. Nuh is known as a hub of cow smugglers. Speaking to Tribune, a senior officer of Nuh police said, “We already have a strict monitoring mechanism against cow smuggling and slaughter. We man the Aravalis hills through drones, so mandis are not held here anymore. A majority of offenders are from Rajasthan areas like Deeg and Alwar. We will go through all inputs and bring the accused to book.”
