Ludhiana, November 24

Body parts of two cows were found scattered in Jeevan Nagar on Wednesday. Tension prevailed in the area as Hindu leaders and local residents gathered and held a protest.

After the incident came to fore, Joint CP Ravcharan Singh Brar, ADCP Rupinder Kaur Sra and ACP Davinder Chaudhary reached the spot and started a probe.

Hindu leaders, including Amit Arora, Rajiv Tandon and Gursimran Singh Mand, chairman, International Anti-Khalistani Terrorists Foundation, reached the spot and sought immediate arrest of the culprits.

Hindu leaders said body parts of two cows were found scattered on the garbage dump, and some were found on the sides of the roads in Jeevan Nagar. The place was situated on the back of the Jeevan Nagar police post.

Hindu leaders held a protest on the road and demanded immediate arrest of the culprits. They were, however, pacified by senior police officials with an assurance that culprits would be arrested soon.

Amit Arora said some anti-national elements committed this crime to create communal tension and if culprits were not nabbed before Monday, they would start an indefinite protest. He demanded that persons who committed the same crime in Malerkotla could be behind this incident too.

ACP Davinder Chaudhary said body parts of cows were sent for post-mortem examination and a case was registered.

Yesterday bovine parts were recovered from a drain in Malerkotla.
