At least three youth Congress workers in Kerala have been suspended for slaughtering an ox in public. The Kerala Police had recorded a case against a Youth Congress leader and other workers after a video was flowed of a group of men slaughtering an ox in open as a group of young fellows yelled anti-government and pro-Youth Congress slogans.
“The video demonstrates an ox being slaughtered. We have taken up cases against the individuals involved for making public nuisance by slaughtering a cattle in public view,” Kannur Police Chief G Siva Kumar said.
The protest, amid which a bull was butchered before open in Kannur, was held on Saturday against the central government’s recent cattle regulation, which prohibits sale and buy of cattle from a cattle market for the purpose of slaughtering.
Congress VP Rahul Gandhi has denounced the occurrence. “What happened in Kerala yesterday is thoughtless,barbaric& totally unacceptable to me &the Congress Party.I strongly condemn the episode,” he said in a tweet.
