Several victim people who have been thrashed by the Gau Raksha Dal in Punjab told the Punjab police that they were detained by the self-styled cow vigilantes, tortured and robbed.
Earlier this month, the Punjab police booked Satish Kumar for allegedly assaulting some persons on the pretext of cow protection. Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked the states to act against “fake” cow protectors.
On Monday, SSP Gurmeet Chauhan said that the FIR was filed on the basis of a video clip which was viral on social media, In the video, the members of Gau Raksha Dal brutally thrashing people.
The chief of Gau Rakshak Dal – Satish Kumar had alleged that the remarks of PM Modi against the cow vigilantism were motivated by “vote bank politics” due to upcoming assembly elections in many states.
He said that the statement of PM Modi is politically motivated. It is one-sided. If he had warned the butchers not to slaughter or smuggle cow, then his statement would have been justified.
Kumar had said that PM Modi is doing vote bank politics to get the butchers’ vote.
The statement of Prime Minister denunciating cow vigilantism came after the incidents of attacks on Dalits in Una, Gujarat where some youths were tied to SUV car and brutally thrashed for skinning a dead cow.
