UP: Allahabad High Court Slams Authorities For Misusing Cow Slaughter Act
The Allahabad High Court has lashed out at UP government authorities for misusing Prevention of Cow Slaughter Act "against innocents" as over half of arrests under National Security Act were for cow slaughter. Reportedly, the UP police, failing to produce evidences, could file closure reports in only 32 of the 4000 cases of cow slaughter. The court also blamed Gaushalas for not keeping the non-milching cattle or old cows.
