Kamlesh Damodar Sutar | IT Online Desk | Mumbai | April 5, 2017:: Following in Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s footsteps to crack down on illegal slaughterhouses, Maharashtra government has ordered the closure of illegal abattoirs across the state.
Maharashtra Animal Husbandry Minister Mahadev Jankar informed that over the past few days, his department had begun to take action against illegal slaughterhouses in different parts of the state.
“We have started acting against illegal slaughterhouses in the state. In the last few days, we have raided several illegal abattoirs in Need, Jalgaon, Dhulia, Bhiwandi and Solapur”, Jankar said.
WILL ENSURE COW PROTECTION LAWS ARE FOLLOWED: MINISTER
“Our cow protection laws are stricter than those in Uttar Pradesh, and we will see to it that they are adhered to”, he added.
The minister said that some arrests had also been made as part of the crackdown. The drive against illegal slaughterhouses is likely to continue for some days to come.
Recently, BJP-ruled Gujarat had passed a stringent law, making cow slaughter punishable with a life sentence. Only a few days ago, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh had also said that cow killers would be hanged.
