Ludhiana, October 18

The police have arrested a man, identified as Samaun, resident of Dauwal village in Gurdaspur district. He and his two accomplices Daarshan Singh, resident of Kotuwala village, Dhanaula, Sangrur, and Ghoga, resident of Jandiala, Sangrur, have been booked under Sections 3, 4 and 4-A of the Punjab Prohibition of Cow Slaughter Act-1955 and Section 11 of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Act-1960 on a complaint filed by Harish Sharma, resident of Preet Nagar, New Shimplapuri.

The complaint said while he was coming from the Humbran side on his car he saw a truck (PB-30H-9068) loaded with cows.

Suspecting that the cows are being taken illegally out of Punjab for slaughter, he intimated the police, who intercepted the truck near Malakpur village, Humbran, recovered 15 cows and a bull from the truck and nabbed one person. Two others managed to escape.
