GREATER NOIDA: A complaint was today filed by residents of Bishada village in Dadri for alleged cow slaughter after a forensic report said that the meat found in the freezer at Mohd Akhlaq's house was beef.

Jarcha Police Station SHO Pradeep Kumar Singh said a "complaint has been received about cow slaughter. Initially, it is being investigated against unnamed accused. Names will be added after investigation confirms the involvement of some person as suspected by the complainants."

On Tuesday, a forensic lab in Mathura submitted its report in a court, saying the beef found in 52-year-old Akhlaq's house in September last year was beef and not mutton as stated by a preliminary lab test done by the Uttar Pradesh veterinary department.

It was stated that on the basis of chemical analysis the forensic investigation of the sample showed that it belonged to "cow or its progeny". The report was sent to the Noida police and submitted to a fast-track court in a sealed cover.

Mohammed Akhlaq (51) was dragged out of his house and killed by a mob in September last year on suspicion of eating beef.

An earlier test said the meat found in his house was mutton, not beef but the Mathura lab report gave a new twist to the whole controversy.

Meanwhile, villagers at Satha Chaurasi village Sapnavat, under the banner of Hindu Yuva Vahini, today burnt the effigy of Samajwadi  Party Supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav and alleged

that the state government was taking one-sided action.

Rashtriya Lok Dal Yuva State president Ravinder Narvar refused to comment on the Bishada episode saying matter was subjudice and said his party is with truth and justice.
