Jai Ho! Police escort for cows in the new India

Post by Rashmun on Thu Jun 15, 2017 7:48 pm

Three days after cow vigilantes attacked trucks carrying cows to Tamil Nadu in western Rajasthan’s Barmer town, a police jeep escorted the convoy out of Rajasthan and handed them over to Gujarat police at dawn on Wednesday.

“We had instructions from the police headquarters to provide police protection to the five trucks carrying cows to Tamil Nadu,” said Barmer’s police chief Gagandeep Singla.

Officials said the Tamil Nadu government had requested police of all states the trucks will pass through – Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra and Karnataka – to provide protection to the trucks carrying the bovines against vigilante attacks.

A police jeep with an inspector and three armed constables escorted five trucks carrying 50 cows of the Tharparkar breed to Gujarat border, 150 km from Barmer, in the dead of the night. “We left around 1 a.m. and reached Gujarat border early morning where a team of Gujarat police was waiting to escort the trucks further,” said Rajendra Choudhary, the leader of the police escort.


The Tamil Nadu animal husbandry department bought the cows from Jaisalmer on June 11. A mob of cow vigilantes attacked the trucks while they were passing through Barmer on the night of June 11. The drivers were thrashed, and an attempt was made to torch the vehicles.
However, timely police action prevented that.
