Hotel sealed in Jaipur after rumours about beef cooking

A hotel operating near the Central Bus Stand in Jaipur was sealed and two of its staff were arrested following a rumour that beef being cooked there.

Trouble started on Sunday evening when Rashtriya Mahila Gau Rakshak Sewa Mandal activists, led by Kamla Didi, stormed into Hotel Hayat Rabbani and thrashed a staff claiming that beef was cooked and served in the hotel.

Huge crowd gathered on the spot raising slogans denouncing cow slaughter and demanded that the hotel's owner hand himself over to them.

The police promptly arrived at the scene and arrested Wasim and Qasim under Section 151 (preventive detention) of Criminal Procedure Code. Officers of the Jaipur Municipal Corporation, accompanied by Ward Councillor Nirmala Sharma, also reached the venue and sealed the hotel after asking all the guests staying there to leave.

Hotel Hayat Rabbani, owned by Naeem Rabbani and functioning for several decades at Kanti Chandra Road near the Central Bus Stand here, largely caters to tourists and travellers from outside Jaipur. It has been getting awards for its services regularly from various hoteliers’ associations.
