Muslim man overwhelmed to demise by cow vigilantes in Karnataka
BENGALURU: A Muslim man was overwhelmed to demise by alleged cow vigilantes in Karnataka’s Ramanagara district, close to Bengaluru.
Idris Pasha, a cattle dealer, and his two associates have been assaulted by self-styled cow protectors led by one Puneet Kerehalli on Friday night time.
The cow vigilantes intercepted a container car wherein Idirs and others have been transporting cattle. Although the merchants advised them that they bought cattle from the market and confirmed the papers, the gang demanded Rs 2 lakh. When Idris refused to pay, they requested him to go to Pakistan and attacked him and two others.
Whereas a few of the attackers chased Idris and Irfan, others assaulted container driver Syed Zaheer. A police constable intervened and took Zaheer and Kerehalli to the close by police station.
Kerehalli lodged a criticism towards Zaheer and others for illegally transporting cows. Zaheer and his associates have been then booked below sections of the Karnataka Prevention of Cow Slaughter and Cattle Prevention Act, Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, Transportation of Animals Act, and Motor Automobiles Act.
In the course of the investigation, police discovered that Idris died after being assaulted by Kerehalli and different cow vigilantes.
On a criticism by Zaheer, police booked a homicide case towards Kerehalli and his associates. The accused have been reported to be absconding.
The killing triggered protests by family of Idris and members of the Muslim neighborhood in Ramanagara. They demanded quick arrest of the culprits.
