Slaughterhouse ban: Jharkhand follows UP, clamps down on illegal abattoirs
28 Mar 2017

  • Egg and fish vendors have joined in and put up shutters too.
  • Many eateries, including Lucknow's legendary Tunday Kababi, had to change menus and temporarily shut operations post the order.

  • Haryana to follow?
    Mulling its own 'gau raksha' movement, the Haryana government has put a stop to the issuance of licences to slaughterhouses. Haryana Cow Protection and Enrichment Unit president Bhani Ram Mangla said the group will intensify their anti-cattle smuggling movement from April end or May first.
