RAJKOT: In a bizzare incident, six people of the ‘Gau Raksha Ekta Samiti’ in Rajkot were hospitalised after they attempted suicide over their demand that the cow be made the ‘Mother of the Nation.’

Yesterday, they gave a memorandum to the Rajkot collector demanding to declare cow as the Mother of the Nation and gave 24 hours time.

However, the demand was not taken into consideration and they have informed the authority of self immolation in the collector office itself. Fortunately, none of them lost their lives and were admitted to hospital in time.

“They were demanding  the gau (cow ) to be declared as the Rashtra Mata  and today they also came to demand it and  six of them have drunk poison sort of things and they have been arrested  and shifted to the Rajkot hospital where couple of them are little serious,” said Police Inspector Kalpesh Chawda.

Yesterday, the activists went to demand the status of cow as the Mother of the Nation and few members from different cities decided to drink poison as part of the protest.

The names of the victims are Kamlesh Rabari from Morbi, Amarbhai  from Gondal, Raghuvir Singh Jadeja from Ahmedabad, Deepak Vaghela from Jasdana and Jayubha Jadeja from Khiri village. They all are under medical supervision and treatment.

The police have put staff in the emergency ward to take stock of the situation.
