According to in-charge of Indore’s Rajendra Nagar police station Sunil Sharma, both the men and an aide were carrying meat in a four wheeler on Sunday. 

“A local veterinary doctor has confirmed that the meat seized from the duo was beef and also other meat. The duo has been arrested. Also, three persons including the arrested duo and their aide who managed to escape have been booked under provisions of the anti-cow slaughter act,” said Sharma.

Sharma, however, denied that the duo was assaulted by people present at the spot. “The medical examination of the duo has revealed no injury,” said Sharma.  

Importantly, a bill to check violence by cow vigilantes is slated to be introduced in the ongoing Vidhan Sabha session in Madhya Pradesh.
