VILLAGERS ATTACKED a police team and managed to release six persons, arrested for alleged cow slaughter, from their custody in Parikshitgarh area of Meerut district on Friday.

They also snatched the meat that the team had seized from the spot.

Later, however, additional police force recovered 15 kg of the meat, which was sent for a lab test.

“The veterinary officer said the meat is beef. But the sample will be sent to a lab in Mathura an authentic report,” Parikshitgarh police SHO OP Singh said.

He added when the team reached Ekla Rasoolpur village following a tip-off, the officers found 10 people dressing butchered meat near a pond.
“We arrested all the 10 men. While we were about to leave with them and the meat, it was announced on the loudspeaker of a religious place — ‘Ye log humare aadmio ko le jaa rahe hain, inhe roko’,” said Singh.

“Following this, several women started throwing stones and household articles like clothes and utensils at us. While we were trying to escape, six of the accused managed to flee from the police jeep.

“We were forced to leave as the crowd was swelling around us with each passing minute. We called for additional forces to reach the scene, who recovered dozen of motorcycles from the spot and 15 kg of meat,” he added.
