Gaushala case
Baba, henchmen held for cruelty to animals

Mandi Ahmedgarh, March 3
The Dehlon police has booked a self-styled baba and his henchmen under Section 429 of the Cruelty to Animals Act for allegedly detaining cows and committing cruelty against them by starving them. The police action came after a number of social and religious organisations of the local town and Ludhiana, reacting to the reports published in the columns of the Ludhiana Tribune, launched a crusade against the alleged nasty act of the baba.

It matches with the full bloomed riot of the splendid spring flowers.
