The Bulandshahr district administration today invok-ed the National Security Act (NSA) against three persons arrested in connection with alleged cow slaughter in Siyana tehsil last month, officials said.

Cattle carcasses were found strewn in the fields outside Mahaw village on December 3 after which a mob went on the rampage, attacking the Chingrawathi police post.

Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh, 44, and civilian Sumit Kumar, 20, died of gunshot injuries in the ensuing violence. Two FIRs — one for the violence in which nearly 80 persons, including 27 named, and the other for cow slaughter — were registered.

Seven persons were arrested in the cow slaughter case, officials said, adding that three of them — Azhar Khan, Nadeem Khan, Mehboob Ali — were charged under the NSA.

“The three had applied for bail and there was a chance of them getting it. Keeping that in mind, the National Security Act has been invoked,” District Magistrate Anuj Jha said.

“To maintain public order and amity, the three have been charged under Section 3(3) of the NSA. The action has been taken based on a police report which stated that the trio indulged in cow slaughtering for earning money illegally,” Jha added.

“Their acts hurt the sentiments of Hindus after which the violence broke out and Inspector SK Singh was killed. This had disturbed public order and communal harmony," Jha said. The DM added if the three were released on bail, they might tamper with proof or engage in cow slaughter again. — PTI
