HYDERABAD, June 28 (The CONNECT) – The Telangana police busted a cattle mafia racket by seizing a truck mercilessly stuffed with 32 ailing bulls which were being taken for illegal slaughtering.
The animals were in such a horrific condition that some of them had their skins peeled off and some were like skeletons.
The Mulugu Police in Siddipet district have handed over the animals to Dhyan Foundation Sahayog Nandishala in Challur village in Yadadri Bhuvanagiri District. One of the bulls was dead by the time it reached the shelter, and six were critical. The condition of others was quite pathetic.
This is only the tip of the ice-berg of the massive animal smuggling racket flourishing in the State. Spiritual and charitable organisation Dhyan Foundation’s gaushalas (cow sheds) receive scores of complaints daily. It houses 3000 plus cows, bulls and calves rescued by police from smugglers and illegal slaughterhouses. They also rescue and rehabilitate stray, injured, orphaned and abandoned cows and bulls.
Even the All-India Jamiatul Quresh Action Committee (AIJQAC), a social organisation, exposed the torture of cow and its progeny by a gang of traffickers. These gangs who smuggled the animals and sell them to illegal butcheries that are a huge menace to the society as they slaughter the animals without observing any norms. AIJQAC, in fact, urged the authorities to stop the illegal slaughter houses which also cause water and earth pollution.
