Police under scanner due to cow mafias in Gurgaon: AAP leader criticises police
Gurgaon and villages nearby Gurgaon are home to villagers, who still have acres of land in their name with cows as an important part of their livelihood. Stolen cows off the streets are a big problem in Gurgaon and a recent incident in Kherki Dhaula, where a truck full of beef was caught, opened many people's eyes towards the topic. Protesting against cow mafia, some people on Monday blocked the Gurgaon Rewari state highway as they wanted to raise awareness for the alleged inaction of Police against the cow mafias.
The large number of people, from various villages came together and blocked the road near the Hyatpur village, which is nearby Gurgaon
bus stand and subsequently resulted in a huge traffic jam. The whole thing also had a political connotation to it as Yogendra Yadav, the Aam Admi Party critised the inaction of the police in a statement.
According to business standard, Yadav said that inspite of informing the authorities about the activities of the cow mafia, the police remained ineffective as they never took any action. A minor incident, where a bike chased a mini truck with cows resulted in the blockade. According to a volunteer, ''Police were called and they chased the mini-truck. However, when people in the police vehicle asked the driver to speed up, they were told this was the maximum speed that could be reached and hence, the mini-truck managed to escape.''
The death of a youth in 2013 has also been reported due to the issue. DCP Sangita Rani and sub-divisional magistrate Om Prakash, however have assured the people that they would increase the patrolling in the problem areas and also that strict actions would be taken against people found involved in such activities.
