An act of bravery by the Superintendent of Police Indira Mukherjee posted at Jhargram, West Bengal. Her prompt action led to the recovery of bulls from armed goons early morning today.
A truck carrying 13 bulls to Dhyan Foundation Chakulia gaushala, Jharkhand was stopped and looted by armed goons in Jambani PS Limits, West Bengal.
These bulls were earlier rescued from the cattle mafia by the Border Security Force at Indo Bangladesh border and handed over to Dhyan Foundation Kishanganj Gaushala for subsequent care. As the gaushala exceeded its keeping capacity, the bulls were being shifted to the NGOs Chakulia Gaushala, which is also the country’s largest Nandi Shala housing over 7000 rescued bulls and cows.
Enroute, the truck driver took a wrong turn and stopped to ask way at Podihati Village. In no time, the locals armed with weapons surrounded the truck, threatened the drivers and took away the cattle.
The drivers somehow managed to escape and enter Jharkhand and complained at Chakulia police station. Jhargram SP, Indira Mukherjee was prompt in action and very soon all the bulls were recovered. They are now safe at the gaushala.
The region is notorious for the activities of the cattle mafia. As per sources, many cattle are hoarded in the local masjid. A similar raid is required to rescue those cattle as well.
