BENGALURU: The High Court on Tuesday appointed two advocates as court commissioners and said that they along with a government pleader should check illegal slaughter houses in the city .
Justice Aravind Kumar told advocates H V Harish and D P Prasanna to submit an inspection report by October 21. He suggested that the court commissioners and government pleader Rachaiah should visit five places from the list provided by Gau Gyan Foundation, the petitioner.

The judge also directed the City Police Commissioner to provide adequate protection to the team. During the hearing, the Additional State Public Prosecutor submitted that illegal slaughter houses could be found only during festivals and that it was due to lack of sufficient slaughter houses.The judge was hearing a petition filed by Gau Gyan Foundation seeking directions to the city police who have failed to check the illegal slaughter houses in Shivajinagar police limits, despite directions issued by a trial court.

This is the second time the court has appointed court commissioners in this matter. On the previous  occasion, the court had appointed the court commissioners to visit alleged illegal slaughter houses, but they were not able to do it as police did not provide adequate protection.

Lawyer gets relief

Justice Kumar issued notice to the state and Union governments in relation to a petition filed by 26-year-old advocate Chinmai Rai from Puttur in Dakshina Kannada district. Rai has challenged a notice issued to him by Puttur police in relation to a case registered against two informants who helped police in preventing the illegal transportation of cattle at Kalladka on August 12 this year. Rai said he represented the two informants in bail petitions. However, police are trying to falsely implicate him also in the case by issuing notice to him to appear before them, he claimed. The judge also stayed the police notice.
