kdsingh80 Posted September 20, 2011 Report Share Posted September 20, 2011 10-year imprisonment for cow slaughter Rajmeet Singh/TNS Mohali, September 20 From now on, those found guilty of cow slaughter would face imprisonment of 10 years instead of two years at present. To further ensure that those indulging in cow slaughter do not get scot free, the Punjab Gau Sewa Board was initiating various steps, its Chairman Kimti Bhagat said here today. After chairing the third governing body meeting of the Punjab Gau Sewa Board here, Kimti Bhagat said to check smuggling of cows for slaughtering, special ‘cow protection’ cells were being set up in the Punjab Police. At the district level, the cell would be headed by a DSP-rank officer, who would act as a nodal officer to check the offence.To rescue abandoned stray cattle, two ambulances have been purchased and a central control room was being established. The chairman said to catch the stray cattle and relocate them at registered cattle sheds, the Punjab Government has sanctioned Rs 6.32 crore. The board would engage animal catcher on contract and pay them Rs 300 per animal. http://www.tribuneindia.com/2011/20110921/punjab.htm#20 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
