HYDERABAD:  Ahead of the Eid al-Adha festival, the Telangana High  Court, while issuing the orders in a writ petition filed by an NGO Gau Gyan Foundation, directed the police and the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) to permit one animal activist to stay at each proposed police check post. The HC has ordered the police department to allow the animal rights activists to stop the vehicles illegally transporting animal and to inform to police.

The High Court, while directing the issue of notice to the police and GHMC, asked why the application of the petitioner is not complied with. The High Court has ruled that the comments of DCP West Zone of “No person can act to stop the vehicle” and threatening to file cases against animal welfare activists as illegal.
