Status of illegal slaughterhouses in Haridwar sought

Nainital, January 3

The Uttarakhand High Court on Thursday summoned the Haridwar District Magistrate to explain the alleged non-compliance of its order on the closure of illegal slaughterhouses in the district.

Justice Sharad Kumar Sharma issued a notice to Haridwar DM Deepak Rawat asking him to appear in the court on January 9, when the matter comes up for hearing next, and explain the status of illegal slaughterhouses in areas under his jurisdiction.

The notice was issued while the court was hearing a contempt petition filed by one Parvez Alam who contended that even after the directions of the court, animals were being slaughtered at many places in Haridwar.  — PTI
