Haryana CM warns against cow slaughter


With cow protection law coming into force in Haryana, stringent punishment will be given to those indulging in cow slaughter or selling or eating beef, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has said.

With the notification of the Act on November 19 after the President’s assent, cow slaughter in Haryana will now attract a rigorous imprisonment ranging from three to 10 years.

“The Gauvansh Sanrakshan and Gausamvardhan Act has come into force,” Mr Khattar said, addressing a public meeting over the week-end after inaugural function of new building of Baijnath Chaudhry Government Women’s College, constructed at a cost of Rs 15 crore by Nangal Chaudhary Baijnath Charitable Trust in Mahendargarh district.

Mr Khattar said: “The Bill was passed unanimously by all 90 members of the Assembly including three Muslim legislators who hail from Mewat,” a Muslim dominated region. -- PTI
