Since the municipal corporation doesn’t run gaushala on its own, it sends stray cows for shelter and care at registered gaushalas.
Organisers and police are suspecting that feeding the cows with fodder contaminated with chemicals might have led to their death.
The CM has also issued directives to the officials concerned on the proper upkeep of the cow sheds and arrangement of adequate fodder to the animals or to be prepared to face the consequences.
Eight cows were locked inside the government-run school campus in Karonda Hathi village a few days ago by some farmers.
Sub Divisional Magistrate said a team of revenue department along with veterinarians had gone to the areas where the bovines died to ascertain the cause.
A judicial commission probing the deaths of around 200 cows in the three government-aided gau-shalas in Chhattisgarh gets an extension of three months.
